WEEKEND: Cherish Our Children fundraiser today

Peninsula Daily News

LAPUSH — The city of Forks and the Quileute tribe are sponsoring the annual Cherish Our Children holiday fundraiser for disadvantaged children at 5 p.m. today.

The event will be at the A-Ka-Lat Center in LaPush.

A festive evening for the entire family is planned.

Along with a dinner will be silent and live auctions, including a silent-auction table for children.

Photos with Santa, a 50-50 drawing and local artisans selling their creations also are planned.

Dinner will include a seafood plate made up of crab and salmon, chowder, fry bread and coleslaw.

Spaghetti and hot dogs are on the menu as well.

Live auction items will include Native art, smoked salmon, elk sausage, Twilight paraphernalia, local artisan creations and baked goods.

Proceeds from the event support gift-giving programs in each community.

In Forks, the food bank sponsors the Santa’s Workshop program, which allows financially struggling families to select gifts for each child in their family.

In LaPush, the Quileute Housing Authority’s program provides gifts for children of struggling families in the community.
