Raffles and Rifles

Come wearing your boots, hungry and ready to get your two-step on in support of Sam Houston State University’s Duck’s Unlimited Chapter.

SHSU’s DU chapter will hold their banquet Nov. 18 at the Walker County Fair Grounds. The doors open at 6 p.m.

The Duck’s Unlimited banquet is the biggest fundraiser for the chapter. “Most of the raised money goes to the national Duck’s Unlimited for conversation efforts,” Blake Baker said.

During the banquet there will be a silent auction, a raffle and games with the opportunity to win prizes.

A few items on the silent auction list will include a free coupon to get a duck mounted, Duck’s Unlimited merchandise, a dove hunt, a guided duck hunt and possibly a guided ram hunt. Items that are planned to be raffled off or won as prizes include two shot guns, two riffles, Ducks Unlimited wooden chairs and table set and many others.

Cody Johnson’s Band, a local country music singer, will be performing. They are likely to go on stage around 7 p.m.

Everyone is welcome out to this event. Presale tickets are $25, tickets at the door are $30 and a cooperate table is $250.

A corporate table seats six people and includes “dinner, alcohol, and nice things for their guests” Baker said.

To get your presale tickets please contact Blake Baker at bgb005@shsu.edu.
