CLINTON — Whitetails Unlimited is sponsoring the Clinton-area banquet Feb. 16 at Vista Grande, 2141 16th St. NW in Clinton.
This special fund-raising event will feature a two-meat dinner, auction and prizes with a wide array of products, such as firearms, outfitter packages, hunting- and outdoor-related equipment, artwork and collectibles only available at WTU events. Grants from this event will go toward projects that uphold WTU’s mission.
The social hour begins at 4:30 p.m. with dinner at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 each for a single adult or $20 for a spouse or child. Ticket order deadline is Feb. 10, and tickets will not be sold at the door.
If attendees purchase banquet tickets for eight people (or more) and become a Table Captain, they also will receive entry in the Table Captain-only gun drawing.
Sponsors are welcome. Silver Sponsors donating $200 in cash will receive a Walker’s WTU ear and eye sponsor safety set and decal, a one-year WTU membership and an entry in the Sponsor-only special gun drawing to be held if 12 or more cash sponsors are collected. Gold Sponsors donating $300 in cash will receive the above benefits, plus two additional chances in the Sponsor-only gun drawing, a Gold Level gift and $70 in Big Buck raffle tickets.
Also available is a $100 Big Bucks Package. The package, valued at $250, includes 132 general raffle tickets for guns and merchandise, six chances at the “Top Gun” and two free gifts.
Proceeds from this fund-raising event will go toward local projects that uphold WTU’s mission. To date, more than $8 million has been donated in Iowa for WTU education, conservation and preservation efforts.
