Donation received

PORT ANGELES — Jig and Lure Fish Co. recently presented the Captain Joseph House Foundation with a check for $1,754.06 during the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon.

The restaurant donates 100 percent of tips to nonprofits based in and serving Clallam County.

During the month of May, employees chose Captain Joseph House as the recipient.

“Employees chose Captain Joseph House because of the organization’s commitment to lend support to Gold Star families of our military’s fallen heroes,” said Jig and Lure co-owner Stephen Fofanoff.

“The house will provide a place for these families to begin rebuilding their lives and start the healing process after such a tragic loss in service to our country. … We believe in honoring our veterans and their families, especially during the month of Memorial Day.”

Said Betsy Reed Schultz, Captain Joseph House founder and Gold Star mother: “All of the money raised is being spent locally in Port Angeles for labor and materials to complete the house.

“We’ve been able to reinvest over $300,000 in the local community during this process. Everything except the elevator has been purchased from local stores.”
