Saturday, August 11th, 2018 – SAVE THE DATE!

On Saturday, August 11th the Padilla Bay Foundation will be hosting our 2018 Annual Dinner & Auction “Taste of Padilla Bay, with a Hawaiian Flair” a delicious seafood dinner, live music and auction with a special spotlight on our sister reserve at He’eia National Estuarine Research Reserve, Hawaii. The evening event will be held at the Padilla Bay Reserve under tents near our historic barn of the pioneer Breazeale Farm. The funds raised that evening will be dedicated to Children’s Science Education enhancement and expansion for the approximately 10,000 students and teachers annually who attend on-site educational classes and mudflat safaris.

The Padilla Bay Foundation invites you to become a sponsor for this year’s fundraiser event. Enclosed is a description of the sponsor levels and how we will recognize your valuable tax-deductible contribution. We also welcome the donation of products or services which we can include in the auction, individual cash contribution, appropriate in-kind contribution, and ticket purchases.

The Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, your public land, the sole Reserve in Washington State focuses on marine research and monitoring, stewardship of the waters and uplands at our site, and education at all age levels. The Padilla Bay Foundation exists to assist the Reserve with funding for special programs, projects, equipment, staff and capital construction. We’re here for you in a natural setting with FREE interpretive exhibits and aquarium, and lovely grounds complete with trails and guides for identifying birds, trees and other attributes of the environment along the coast of our eelgrass rich estuary at Padilla Bay.

We invite you to join us as shareholders in preserving the riches of the Padilla Bay estuary and greater Salish Sea, and supporting the 2018 Annual Dinner & Auction “Taste of Padilla Bay, with a Hawaiian Flair.” Please email or call us with any questions you may have at foundation@padillabay.gov 360-757-3234.

Most sincerely yours,
Andrew Entrikin
