Steveston Lifeboat Fundraiser

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016, 5pm to 8pm

Entry by donation, Vancouver Maritime Museum

The Vancouver Maritime Museum, BC Shipping News  and The Canadian Fishing Company are hosting this event to assist famed lifeboat commander and marine artist, John Horton.

For 36 years John has volunteered his “Steveston Lifeboat” into SAR and prevention service, but in December 2014 it was involved in an unfortunate training accident, requiring a major refit. John’s support of the marine industry is legendary, but now he needs help to complete the repair as his financial resources have run out. 

The evening will feature some of John Horton's art in the silent auction. He will also present a brief version of his highly popular illustrated talk on Captain Vancouver’s Voyage of Discovery of this coast.

There will be a distinguished guest speaker, a silent auction and some light refreshments. The Fundraising Goal is $40,000.

If you have any questions, are able to donate funds or an item for the silent auction, please contact Mary Horton at or at 604 943-4399.
