Jennette Child serves up another plate of fish and chips at the fundraiser.

Fabulous fish fry fundraiser

Community comes out in support of fish and chip fundraiser.

The community showed up big to support the recent fish and chips fundraiser at U’gwamalis Hall in Fort Rupert.

So big in fact, that the event sold out of the battered half of the pairing.

Organizer Leslie Dickie said that at least 120 plates were sold Friday, June 6, helping to raise $2,616 in support of medical expenses for Sandra Sewid.

“The community came out in full support,” said Dickie. “Sandra really appreciates it.”

The balance of the total came from raffle items including woven cedar items, art and housewares — all donated.

Also gifted to the cause were the fish and the use of the hall, courtesy of the Kwakiutl Band.

“I can’t thank them enough,” said Dickie of the donors.
