Ducks Unlimited began in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when the waterfowl population had plummeted to an all time low due to drought. A few sportsmen banded together and formed an organization with one mission; to preserve the continent’s waterfowl habitat. After years of faithful members spread across the United States, Mexico, and Canada, Ducks Unlimited is the largest and most effective private waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization in the world.
Fundraisers around the country are held to support the organization such as fundraising banquets. Our local Ducks Unlimited banquet will be held on Thursday, February 11, 2016 from 5:30-10 p.m. at the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center. This event is open to the public and tickets will be sold at the door, single tickets are $55 and double tickets are $80. The ticket price includes a membership fee and dinner. There will be a live and silent auction, as well as a raffle drawing.
