Big awards given at Sparwood’s Fish and Wildlife banquet and fundraiser

The hall was full during Sparwood’s Fish and Wildlife banquet and fundraiser.



The hall was full during Sparwood’s Fish and Wildlife banquet and fundraiser. During the evening prizes, raffles, a silent auction, and trophy presentations took place. Later on, people danced the night away, celebrating this worthy event.

“The banquet is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” said Matt Huryn, Fish and Wildlife president. “The success of the evening was overwhelming, we received so much support from local businesses and from all those that came out to enjoy the evening.”

All money raised from the event will go to local Fish and Wildlife projects such as the habitat enhancement project on Big Ranch, purchasing youth archery supplies for this summer’s junior archery program as well as other projects that take place throughout the year.

 

The Fish and Wildlife Club would like to invite all members of the community to attend their meetings and become a part of the club. Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month at 7 p.m. in the top area of the Fire Hall.
