Fundrais­ing din­ner and auc­tion tak­ing place this week­end.

LEWISPORTE, NL — Pro­mot­ing lo­cal con­ser­va­tion and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams is some­thing Ducks Un­lim­ited Canada (DUC) is known for lo­cally.

The an­nual DUC din­ner and auc­tion will be tak­ing place in Lewisporte on Satur­day, Nov. 18.

The event fea­tures a live and silent auc­tion, raf­fle, door prizes and a de­li­cious meal.

DUC fundrais­ing man­ager Paul Wood said funds raised through this event help sup­port ini­tia­tives such as Project Web­foot for Grade 4 stu­dents in the prov­ince. Last year stu­dents in Lewisporte took part. DUC con­ser­va­tion spe­cial­ists took the stu­dents on a field trip to Wool­frey’s Pond for a learn­ing ad­ven­ture.

DUC has also part­nered with the Town of Lewisporte on projects such as sig­nage for the South­west Brook Es­tu­ary and Wool­frey’s Pond board­walk.

The Nov. 18 event will take place at the Kins­men Cen­tre. Tick­ets are $65 dou­ble and $45 sin­gle. Con­tact Paul Wood at 489-7674 for tick­ets.
