The Missouri/Milk River chapter of Ducks Unlimited will be hosting its 28th Annual Fundraising banquet in support of DU’s 77th year of existence on Saturday, March 8 at the Cottonwood Inn with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.
Ken Jansa, officer with the local chapter of Ducks Unlimited said that this banquet has been quite beneficial for this area.
"We are very fortunate to be able to say that DU spends a lot of money locally and conserves many acres for the benefit of people and wildlife," Jansa said.
The money banquet attendees spend at this event is put to work in the local area. DU spends $3 for every $1 raised in Montana for local projects.
In Montana, more than 57,377 acres have been enhanced or protected and more than 56,856 acres have been provided technical assistance.
Phillips and Valley Counties are primary benefactors of DU’s work. To date, DU has completed right at 600 Projects spending $23 Million dollars in Montana.
We truly are lucky to be a benefactor of DU’s great conservation work….which benefits over 900 species of wildlife.
Early Bird Tickets are available at D&G Sports & Western and at Valley Bank through Saturday, March 1.
After that you will need to contact Ken Jansa at 228-2031 for ticket availability.
