Kiwanis Club’s 63rd Annual Salmon Bake raises more than $21,000

Hundreds gathered to enjoy a salmon dinner, music and more at Steel Lake Park on July 26.

This year’s 63rd Annual Kiwanis Salmon Bake event raised more than $21,000 for the local community, said Federal Way Kiwanis President Steven Smith.

Salmon, a warm summer evening and smiles all around commemorated the Salmon Bake fundraiser last Friday at Steel Lake Park.

The Kiwanis Club supports college scholarships, various clubs in the Federal Way school district and other community service clubs throughout the local area.

More than 780 attendees enjoyed a delicious dinner, a wine and beer garden, live entertainment, raffles and auctions throughout the evening. Chairman of this year’s event was Gordon Goodsell.

The evening’s lake views were accompanied by classic rock and roll tunes from Max Renshaw.

Prepared by John Hatcher of Cafe Pacific, the salmon dinner included Caesar salad, potato salad, corn on the cob and Jimmy Mac’s rolls with honey butter. Cafe Pacific Catering was also honored for their dedication of 25 years both sponsoring and catering the annual event.

“I thought it went very well,” Smith said of the Salmon Bake’s success. “It cooled down when the sun went below the trees. I think people had a great time.”
