PORT ANGELES — W. Ron Allen, CEO and tribal chairman of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, will speak at the Feiro Marine Life Center’s ninth annual “Fish on the Fence” gala this Saturday.

Allen will speak on “The Future of Feiro and Economic Development on the North Olympic Peninsula.”

Tickets are on sale at www.feiromarinelifecenter.org/fotf.

The annual fundraiser for the center on City Pier showcases the impact of Feiro’s education and citizen science programs, and features dinner and live and silent auctions.

Last year’s event raised about $40,000 to support the marine center.

During the gala, guests will be able to bid on live and silent auction items, including trips to Friday Harbor; Lake Sutherland; San Diego, Calif.; and New Orleans, as well as fine art pieces from Clark Mundy and Ken Campbell.

Also at the event, the second annual Feiro Family Scholarship award will be announced.

As tribal chairman since 1977, Allen is responsible for representing the tribe as the elected leader and for addressing political and policy issues and positions at the national, state and local levels.

As CEO since 1982, he also is responsible for the administration of the tribe’s programs, including education, career development, social services, housing, health, economic development, natural resource management and cultural/traditional affairs.

The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and its partners recently committed to expanding the Dungeness River Audubon Center to provide greater learning opportunities to the community.
