From the event write-up:
Support for this event means that you will be helping the families of fishermen lost at sea with grief counseling and college scholarships. In addition to family support the Memorial Fund helps with continued safety training for fishermen. 90% of the net proceeds go to benefit the Seattle Fishermen’s Memorial and 10% go to benefit The Ballard Chamber of Commerce. Get SeafoodFest off to a big start and show your support for this great cause!
Tickets are $50 per person (available here) which includes all-you-can-eat BBQ and three drink tickets.
