SEPT-ÎLES, October 18, 2012 – With only one week to go before the third edition of the “5 à huîtres maritime” event, the organizing committee has already confirmed the presence of two hundred guests. Tickets are only on sale for one more week, and the committee is eagerly awaiting the final participants who will make the evening a success. Chef Ian Perreault will be the special guest this year. In addition to helping Club Richelieu volunteers concoct special recipes for the activity, Mr. Perreault will be demonstrating his culinary talents during the evening.

A shuttle service will be available between the parking lot of the old Canadian Tire (corner of Maltais and Arnaud) and the Naval Reserve at 366 Arnaud Avenue.

Third edition of the “5 à huîtres maritime”

This charity event organized by the Port of Sept-Îles in collaboration with Club Richelieu, the HMCS Jolliet (Naval Reserve) and the Élyme des sables palliative care centre, is now in its third edition. It features an original concept designed to collect as much money as possible to help support the ongoing operation of the Sept-Îles palliative care centre. Last year, over $84,500 were raised.

Participants have two options to choose from. The Rockefeller version at $500 per person consists of a tasting of gourmet oyster dishes, while the Malpèque version at $100 per person is for raw oyster lovers looking for a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The fresh oyster tasting is accompanied by a buffet dinner. The evening will also feature entertainment, free drinks, contests, music, and door prizes.

Tickets are on sale at the Port of Sept-Îles (418 968-1231) and will be available at the Naval Reserve entrance starting at 5 p.m. on the day of the activity.
