Please join us for our
30th Annual Hall of Fame Banquet & Auction
The Association of Northwest Steelheader’s Annual Hall of Fame Banquet & Auction honors the volunteers who dedicate their time to cooperatively working for a lasting legacy of healthy fisheries.
This year’s event will focus on Resolve, Respect, and Recognition of our 57-year battle against gillnets on the mainstem Columbia River
Due to our resolve, we’ve finally achieved a nearly six-decade fight for an equal share of the Columbia River harvest. Along with that allocation comes a better future for wild salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River basin. With the most significant non-selective method of harvest largely removed from the mainstem Columbia, wild spring Chinook, wild coho and wild steelhead have a fighting chance for recovery in our region. We have earned the respect and recognition as a community, not willing to falter until we achieve what’s best for the resource.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11th | 4pm – 9pm
Wilsonville Holiday Inn
25425 SW 95th Ave, Wilsonville, OR 97070
$60 per guest, or a table of 10 can be reserved for your party. Relax and stay the weekend with a discounted room at $89/night.*
The evening begins with a welcome reception, presentation by a local color guard, lively games, and a silent auction, followed by a delicious buffet dinner, live auction, keynote address, and our prestigious awards to exceptional recipients. Why not do your holidays shopping early while supporting a great organization? We will have trips to destination locations including Cabo, Hawaii, and Argentina, local guided outdoors trips, spa getaways, and so much more! All proceeds benefit the Association of Northwest Steelheaders.
Army Veteran Sergeant, Brett Miller, will be our keynote speaker. His non-profit organization, Warfighter Outfitters, takes thousands of veterans on hunting and fishing trips throughout the western United States. Brett knows a thing or two about how the power of the outdoors can help our service members. During service in Iraq, Brett’s Humvee was hit by a roadside bomb which left him severely injured and partially paralyzed. During his three-year recovery, Brett turned to cycling as a form of therapy and rehabilitation — and was later asked by the Wounded Warrior Project to be part of their winning Race Across America Team. WWP honored Brett with the Courage Award this year and he continues his service through Warfighter Outfitters.
Please join us at the event to hear more about Brett and his organization and the conservation successes of the Northwest Steelheaders while raising money for fisheries protections for the next 50 years! You do not need to be a member to join in the festivities.
