During the month of December, all proceeds from the "Gift of Life” appetizer at Fleetwood's on Front Street were geared towards helping to support Pacific Whale Foundation's whale research, public education and conservation programs to protect whales and the oceans. Mick presented a cheque on behalf of Fleetwood's on Front St. with the funds raised from the Gift of Life Appetizer Program.
