Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre Burger & Beer Night a Great Success

July 21st, 2011

Cowichan Bay, B.C. – The Cowichan Land Trust’s Burger & Beer Night July 17th at the Cowichan Bay Marine Pub was a great success, raising over $4600 for the Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre!!  Those who came out to support the fundraiser event enjoyed a great meal, good company, and wonderful entertainment by folk artist and singer songwriter Cara McCandless.  Guests also had the chance to bid on dozens of fantastic items in both a silent auction and exciting live auction!
