The Friends of the Jensen Arctic Museum/Arctic Foundation of Oregon invite you to eat, learn and play while preserving Oregon’s bit of the Arctic. Dinner guests will enjoy a wild salmon dinner at the 28th Annual Wild Salmon Bake Benefit Dinner on Sunday Sept. 8 beginning at 4:00 p.m. This year’s dinner theme is Preparing for Hibernation.
Held at historic Gentle House, at the north edge of the Western Oregon University campus, the event will feature fine food, music, and raffles. The event includes a pit-fired wild Alaskan Arctic salmon barbecue accompanied by corn on the cob, salads and and rolls. Hors d’oeuvres and dessert created by Sybaris in Albany.
Only 100 tickets will be sold and they cost $30 per person. Tables of eight are available for $210. Entertainment will include live music, a special presentation and raffles. The wild Alaskan salmon was caught and transported by Oregonians David Stahlke and Ray Braswell with the one and only LaVonne Hendricks of LaVonne’s Fish Camp: an education cultural camp and elder hostel in Kotzebue.
