Ducks Unlimited at VSU Presents 10th Annual Fundraiser March 23

VALDOSTA — The Valdosta State University chapter of Ducks Unlimited will presents its 10th annual fundraising banquet at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 23, at The Kennedy Center. Area outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to attend this event and help support wetlands and waterfowl conservation efforts.

Tickets for the event are $60 and include a seafood buffet, dessert, and a one-year membership to Ducks Unlimited, which comes with its own set of perks, including a subscription to the organization’s bimonthly magazine, discounts at its online store, and a wealth of information on waterfowling across the United States.

VSU students with a valid 1Card may purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $40.

The deadline to purchase advance tickets is 5 p.m. on Monday, March 20, although a few tickets may be available at the door on the night of the event.

Throughout the evening, attendees will have numerous opportunities to win duck hunting merchandise, as well as guns, tools, coolers, Ducks Unlimited 80th Anniversary items, and more during random drawings and live and silent auctions. Bottled beer and alcoholic beverages will be available for an additional cost to those ages 21 and older. A limited number of VSU Ducks Unlimited T-shirts and hats will be available for purchase at $20 each.

Corporate sponsorships are available.

All proceeds from the event will support Ducks Unlimited’s mission to conserve, restore, and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America’s waterfowl, which are being degraded and destroyed around the world, and to someday have “wetlands sufficient to fill the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow, and forever.” These conservation efforts also benefit other wildlife and people.

The Kennedy Center is located at 306 St. Augustine Road in Valdosta. This facility was formerly known as the Knights of Columbus building.
