Coastal Harvest’s seventh annual “Music by the Sea” fundraiser is March 15

Good food, good music and a good cause all come together for Coastal Harvest’s seventh annual “Music by the Sea” fundraiser March 15.

Tickets are $40 each, and proceeds help the non-profit feed the hungry through five counties.

The evening at Quinault Beach Resort and Casino kicks off with a buffet meal including pumpkin-crusted salmon, Herbs de Provence chicken breast, rice pilaf, pasta salad and dessert. Live music is provided by Roz and Jim of Fair Winds and live and silent auctions will be held. Tables for 8 to ten can be reserved for an additional $25.

Tickets must be pre-purchased by March 5 by calling Andi at (360) 532-6315 or online at

The evening will be hosted by Johnny Manson and Eric Bjella will serve as auctioneer.

The auction will feature a perennial favorite, lunch with state oral historian and former Daily World editor John Hughes. Bidders can also vie for a Grays Harbor Raceway package, including dinner and limo service, a load of gravel from Quigg Bros., an original etching of the Grays Harbor County Courthouse, a Clam Hawk clam gun, hand-knit Seahawks hats and more.

The food distribution warehouse operates much like a food bank equivalent of Costco: The non-profit supplies free food to more than 50 food banks, senior centers, tribal centers and feeding programs through Grays Harbor, Pacific, Lewis, Thurston, Mason and Wahkiakum counties. It operates its own warehouse and trucks based in Hoquiam, and aims to use donated funds more effectively by buying in bulk and negotiating discounts.

Special room rates are available from QBRC, $99 ocean view, $89 wetlands view. Call 1-888-461-2214 to make a room reservation.
