Take a spin, save a swamp

Field and Game - - FGA BRANCH NEWS -

2017 sees the Wet­lands En­vi­ron­men­tal Task­force’s bi­en­nial fundrais­ing event re­turn, this year fea­tur­ing a nov­elty casino. Guests will have the chance to hit the jack­pot — or hit rock bot­tom — at the ta­bles us­ing “funny money” … but even if you lose the lot on the ta­bles, you might still be a win­ner in the char­ity auc­tion. If you’re keen to make a splash at the ta­bles, we’ll be of­fer­ing spe­cial “high roller” tick­ets — make an ex­tra do­na­tion with your ticket pur­chase and you’ll be treated to ad­di­tional funny money in your start­ing bun­dle. Held at Yarra Glen Rac­ing, your ticket will get you a three-course meal, a starter bun­dle of funny money, and time at each gam­ing ta­ble — roulette, black­jack, and the big wheel. At the end of the evening we’ll be hold­ing a char­ity auc­tion to raise funds for wet­land con­ser­va­tion. The Wet­lands En­vi­ron­men­tal Task­force’s great con­ser­va­tion and restora­tion projects are made pos­si­ble by donors and vol­un­teers with a vi­sion for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to en­joy the eco­log­i­cal, en­vi­ron­men­tal, ed­u­ca­tional and recre­ational ben­e­fits that wet­land habi­tats have to of­fer. Tick­ets are on sale now, visit

www.wet.org.au to buy on­line, or call the FGA Na­tional Of­fice on (03) 5799 0960 to book your place.
