The North Shore Rotary Club held their 41st annual benefit Fish Fry last Saturday, at the Rotary Pavilion on Wallisville Road.

After the large crowd enjoyed a beautiful sunny day for several hours, a gale wind and storm hit the pavilion and park grounds, thoroughly soaking everyone, even those in side and under the roof.

But by that time, the live auction, silent auction, and ticket draw had been completed, and everyone either had their prize or an auction item that they wanted. About 1200 tickets at $100 were sold for the raffle for a new vehicle, and that included a lunch of catfish or crawfish. Several thousand of these meals were prepared and sold during the afternoon.

Every year the club raises a large amount of money for community projects, and this year the total receipts approached $400,000, which included raffle tickets and about $170,000 in the live auction.

The event is put on by everyone in the club, and helped by other volunteers.

In charge each year is the president-elect, which was Kim Gonzalez. The overall responsibility is to the president, Mike Williams. The auction bidding was conducted by Ed Phillips, with the help of Rotarian Scott Stevens.

Gold sponsors for the event included Bestway Oilfield, Blue Northern, Channelview ISD Education Foundation, Community Toyota, Everitt Industrial Supply, Galena Park ISD Educational Foundation, and San Jacinto Educational Foundation.

    I think that the last line was meant to say San Jacinto College Educational Foundation. Thank you to the North Channel Star for such a nice article.
