WAYNE – Make sure to reserve a seat at this weekend’s upcoming Ducks Unlimited event.
From the Beaumont Event & Concert Hall, doors open at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, November 11 as this local event will help raise funds for wetlands and waterfowl conservation.
The Wayne Area Chapter of Ducks Unlimited will host its 18th annual Auction and Member Banquet fundraiser with dinner at 7:00 p.m. and live auction to follow.
Kent Bearnes from Laurel is the chairman of the organized Wayne Area Chapter of Ducks Unlimited committee. This event will give local residents an opportunity to get involved in a practical conservation program and have a good time as well.
Ducks Unlimited is the world’s largest wetlands, waterfowl and wildlife conservation organization.
Ducks Unlimited has conserved more than 13 million acres of wetlands and related waterfowl habitat since 1937, thanks to contributions from more than a million supporters and members from across the continent.
Help celebrate 85 years of Ducks Unlimited by joining the group for a dinner, prizes and good time for you and your family while helping support wetlands conservation.
The first 50 kids, age 15 and younger, “Greenwings” (who must be accompanied by a Ducks Unlimited Adult member) can attend the banquet for free. In addition to membership and a meal, all Greenwings will be entered into drawings of youth items.
Tickets are available at the door or from any committee member, or to buy tickets online, visit www.ducks.org/nebraska/events. A single ticket is $45, couples are $65 and greenwings are $20. The National bronze level package at $270 includes dinner and membership in DU.
This year’s banquet will include an auction of both collectible DU art and memorabilia and other useful items for the hunter and collector.
