The Alberni Deep Space Port Star Trek Fan Association hosted another successful Yuri’s Night World Space Party at Char’s Landing in mid-April.

All of the gate proceeds went to the Alberni-Clayoquot SPCA, Commanding Officer (aka president) Gillian Shearwater said. The group raised $99.25 and also collected donations of pet food and supplies.

Nancy Webster won the costume contest in a Risa-inspired ensemble.

“Alberni Deep Space Port members thank everyone who turned out to celebrate Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human in space on April 12, 1961,” Shearwater said.

“Special appreciation goes to Charlene Patterson for sponsoring Yuri’s Night in Port Alberni. Her birthday is the same day that Gagarin launched. It’s a privilege to share the ‘space’ at Char’s Landing for Yuri’s Night.”

Alberni Deep Space Port Star Trek Fan Association is a registered BC non-profit society.
