Tickets are available for fundraiser
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.
Volunteers from the 2016 Ducks Unlimited Canada dinner and auction will be back to help make the event a success.
