Friday at 5 p.m. sportsmen will have the chance to get in on some hunting prizes, all while helping Northern Michigan wildlife.
The Ruffed Grouse Society is hosting its 39th Annual Conservation and Sportsmen’s Banquet fundraiser.
It takes place Friday, September 9 at the Haggerty Center in Traverse City.
This year’s event features a live and silent auction, as well drawings and prizes like firearms, artwork and collectables.
Proceeds go toward enhancing the habitat for grouse and American woodcock and other forest wildlife.
"Our mission statement is healthy forests, abundant wildlife and sporting traditions. And we raise money with that in mind, to preserve our hunting heritage for future generations,” says Terry Lamb, Ruffed Grouse Society regional director.
Start time is set for 5 p.m. Friday.
Tickets are sold out, but the Ruffed Grouse Society is still accepting donations.
