The Genesee County Chapter of Ducks Unlimited will hold its 38th annual fund-raising event at the Sacred Heart Social Center beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28. The center is located at 17 Sumner Ave. in Basom.
There will be raffles, an auction, a silent auction and lots of good food catered by Bohn's restaurant. This is a family affair -- men, women, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles and all are welcome.
Cost is $60 per person or $85 per couple and includes a Ducks Unlimited membership and dinner.
The funds raised will go directly into efforts to save our wetlands and to help preserve nesting areas and promote growth of areas for many species of songbirds, waterfowl and other animals.
Ducks Unlimited, Inc., is the largest fund-raising organization of its kind in the world. It has more than 700,000 members with more than 13 million acres of land under its control to help build wetland habitat.
Eight-six cents out of every dollar raised goes into the environment. This past year, out of 4,000 chapters in the United States, the Batavia Chapter ranked 37th for the highest amount of dollars donated to Ducks Unlimited.
