In order to support its annual scholarship program, the Port Hardy Chamber of Commerce is auctioning off two packages.
The first is a “See, Feel, Taste package and the second is a Cultural Experience package.
The ‘see’ portion of the first package is a Glicee art print of beautiful Storey’s Beach by Alf B Images.
The ‘feel’ portion is a trip for two with Stubbs Island Whale Watching.
The ‘eat’ portion is a $50 gift certificate to any restaurant in Port Hardy.
The Cultural Experience Package includes a trip for two to Yukusam Island with SeaWolf Adventures and an art print of the winner’s choice from Yukusam Island on canvas or brushed aluminium.
Yukusam Island is situated in the Johnstone Strait at the south-west gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest and is a place that is rich with life. This island is a living museum and the culturally shaped trees tell the story of Kwakwaka’wakw traditional forestry methods that allowed the forest to thrive and provide for generations to follow.
Each year, the Chamber gives a $500 scholarship to a Port Hardy Secondary School student who is pursuing post secondary education, says Interim Executive Director Angela Smith.
The auction winners will be drawn at the end of May.
