Annual Banquet

Our banquet, the largest fundraiser and most important revenue source, will be held on March 2, 2019. This is different from previous years due to the fact that National Pheasant Fest is being held the last Saturday in February of 2019. The evening's festivities include a live auction, silent auction, and a variety of raffles, including a 25-gun raffle. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., with dinner served at 6:30 p.m.

Please contact the chapter if you have interest in becoming a donor, sponsor, or would like to attend the banquet.
