Sonoma, CA (September 17, 2019) — Please join the Golden Gate Salmon Association (GGSA) for an evening of culinary delights, Sonoma County’s finest wines, and to honor Erich Pearson. Erich is the founder of Sparc and operates the Sparc Farm at Gordenker Ranch in Glen Ellen.

The festivities will take place at Viansa Winery, 25200 Arnold Drive in Sonoma on Saturday, November 16 starting at 5p.m. The winery known for its wetlands and views, provides a perfect location for the annual GGSA fundraiser.
The evening will begin with an appetizer reception, followed by a dinner featuring California wild King salmon. After dinner, guests will have the opportunity to bid on vacation getaways, quality outdoor gear and salmon fishing trips in 2020, which will sure to be a great season!
All proceeds go to GGSA’s work to restore California’s most important salmon runs. Hope to see you there!
The Golden Gate Salmon Association (www.goldengatesalmonassociation.org) is a coalition of salmon advocates that includes commercial and recreational salmon fisherman, businesses, restaurants, a native tribe, environmentalists, elected officials, families and communities that rely on salmon. GGSA’s mission is to protect and restore California’s largest salmon producing habitat comprised of the Central Valley river’s that feed the Bay-Delta ecosystem and the communities that rely on salmon as a long-term, sustainable, commercial, recreational and cultural resource.
Currently, California’s salmon industry is valued at $1.4 billion in economic activity annually in a normal season and about half that much in economic activity and jobs again in Oregon. The industry employs tens of thousands of people from Santa Barbara to northern Oregon. This is a huge economic bloc made up of commercial fishermen, recreational fishermen (fresh and salt water), fish processors, marinas, coastal communities, equipment manufacturers, the hotel and food industry, tribes, and the salmon fishing industry at large.
