Ducks Unlimited Celebrates 81 Years

 

February 21, 2018



The Missouri/Milk River Chapter of Ducks Unlimited will be hosting its 32nd Annual Fundraising banquet in support of Ducks Unlimited’s 81st birthday on March 10 at the Cottonwood Inn. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The Cottonwood will be serving their prime rib dinner until 6:30 p.m.

Ducks Unlimited has provided the local chapter with an outstanding lineup of guns and other Ducks Unlimited memorabilia. There is also an awesome lineup of prizes and services provided by the local community.

Some of the prizes to be taken home will be given away via live and silent auction and fun raffles, including models of the Ducks Unlimited Shotgun, Rifle, Pistol, Decoy and Knife of the year; over two dozen guns, a halibut fishing trip for two people with Kings Run Charters out of Ninilchik, Alaska, with round trip airline tickets from Cape Air, as well as a ton of prizes just for the ladies.

The money spent by banquet attendees at this event is put to work in the local area. Ducks Unlimited spends $3 for every $1 raised in Montana for local projects. In Montana, since 1984, Ducks Unlimited has restored or enhanced over 68,000 acres and provided technical assistance on an additional 116,000 acres. Phillips and Valley Counties are primary benefactors of Ducks Unlimited work. To date, Ducks Unlimited has completed over 822 Projects, spending $26 million 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 March 5. After the initial date, you will need to contact Ken Jansa at 406-228-2031 for ticket availability.
