Cliff HartHASA Business Leave a Comment

We had another successful HASA fundraiser on April 30, 2016 at the Arcata Community Center thanks to a great fundraiser committee, awesome donators, and all you loyal supporters. HASA is your local voice for saltwater sportfishing issues and it would not be possible without all of you. The new location was great, lots of room, great sound system, great food, lots of prizes, and lots of fun was had by all.

I would like to recognize our fundraiser committee and volunteers:  Scott & Becky McBain, Cliff & Leslie Hart, Aaron Martin, Seth Naman, Dirk & Beck Pedersen, Rob & Stephanie Freeman, Kent Hulbert, Chris Hayes, Yoshi Uemura, Tim & Colleen Machado, Eric Stockwell, Gene and Margaret Morris, Ross Taylor, Larry & Carol De Ridder, Jed & Kim Douglas, Tim & Sherry Klassen, Jimmy & Brenda Yarnall, Ben & Sue Doane, Bob and Carol Stewart, and Casey & Marlene Allen.

We had a new record turnout of 345 persons, including 34 children. We raised $35,000 with an approximate net income of $24,000 that will be used for projects and representing our North Coast sportfishers during the 2016/2017 fiscal year. The food was provided by Ramone’s Catering and was awesome, and the linens were supplied by Mission Linen. The beverages were donated by Mad River Brewery, Six Rivers Brewery, Redwood Curtain, Jed Douglas, and John’s Fine Cigars. Our auctioneer was Fred Van Vleck who did a fabulous job for us and was a lot of fun. Thank you all!

The live and silent auctions raised $13,500 and raffle ticket sales were $7,500. We had 11 live auction items and 52 silent auction items, including but not limited to reclining sofa from Living Styles, recliner from Arcata Exchange, goose hunt from Mitch Ferro/Don Banducci, fuel from Renner Petroluem, drift boat fishing trip for two from Alan Borges, six pack boat charter in Shelter Cove with Sea Hawk Sportfishing, and two rod/reel combos donated by Accurate Reels and HASA. We also had the Zulu Nyala Africa trips once again that were bought for a bargain at $1,500 each by Trevor Parker and Janae Gosselin. These are just a small sample of all the wonderful donations from our sponsors (see list of sponsors) . The Super Raffle prize was an awesome Accurate rod/reel combo that was won by Jane Hart, and we had a fun card game in which Kent Hulbert won the Qualia Q12 Advanz Two reel / Accurate 7030 rod.

We received $700 in donations for the kids’ raffle. All 34 kids walked away with something like a rod/reel combo, tackle box, tackle bags, and snorkel sets among other things. Special thanks to Lima’s Pharmacy, O&M Industries, Michael & Jeff Holland DDS, B2 Squid, Phil Grunert, and Pacific Outfitters for donating to the kids raffle. And thank you to Bob & Charleen Hoopes who provide a large cash donation to HASA every year.

We had a few vendors this year including the Coast Guard Auxiliary, B2Squid, Pacific Outfitters / Pac Out Green Team, and Fred Contaoi of Douglas Outdoors and Red Eye Trolling Lures who displayed their products or services.

And thanks to all who sold tickets for HASA including our partners at Bucksport Sporting Goods Eureka, Englund Marine Eureka, Englund Marine Crescent City, Mad River Tackle Arcata, Pacific Outfitters Eureka, RMI Outdoors Eureka, and W&W RV & Sporting Goods Eureka.
