Central Coast friends and fellow commercial fishermen are holding a fundraiser for Eric Eder’s sons who were left fatherless when Eder fell off the Fishing Vessel Seeker and disappeared into the dark waters of the Bering sea last month. Eder left behind a wife and two sons.
It’s the two sons that the fundraisers want to contribute to – to their education and whatever assistance they’ll need in the future to live long and happy lives – as Eric would want. The boys are age 5 and 4 months. The family has already received considerable donations for general living expenses for the near future.
The Sons of Eric Eder Fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, May 17, 6-10pm at the Newport Elks Lodge on John Moore Road. There will be a no host bar, silent auction and a donation requested at the door.
