ESTEVAN - The Estevan Wildlife Federation is looking forward to the return of its annual fundraising dinner and auction.
The event is set to take over at the Wylie Mitchell Building on April 23 with supper, raffles, auctions and more - all in support of the organization.
The fundraiser has been called off for the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and event organizers are looking forward to bringing the dinner back this year.
“We are so excited to welcome everyone back to this great event as we raise funds for the wildlife federation,” said EWF board member Kendra Lainton.
Tickets are now available for the event and are selling quickly. There is expected to be 200-250 people in attendance.
People can purchase individual tickets or a table of eight by calling Kendra Lainton at 306-461-6909 or Monica Eagles at 306-461-6757.
All funds raised at this event are used throughout the year to support the organization and its programming. Some of the popular features and programs include maintaining the clubhouse and gun ranges, the marina at Rafferty Dam, a Fish in Schools Program and youth summer conservation camp.
“Our group cares a lot about bringing awareness of wildlife conservation and education in our community and giving back to the areas that we call home,” said Lainton.
The event is going to be an exciting night filled with many opportunities to support the EWF and to win as well.
“Every year we always have so many ways for guests to take part in the fundraiser. We have multiple raffles and games, our live and silent auction and more to keep our guests entertained, get them excited about the potential to win big and support our cause. It’s always a great night,” said Lainton.
The EWF is a non-profit organization with a mission of managing wildlife in southeast Saskatchewan through education and development.
