The Islands Spirits Rising benefit last Friday raised a total of $11,270.52, according to Haida spokesperson Irene Mills.
The evening-long benefit included a dinner, a loonie-twoonie auction and a dance later in the evening. All were well attended, with the Queen Charlotte hall filled, with islanders from all communities.
What to do with the money is being considered by a committee, but Ms Mills said the intention is to give it to islanders who lost wages because of the protest. Contact Betsy Cardell at 559 4716 for information.
