Join Us for a Fun Night Supporting our Conservation and Education Work!

Our annual banquet will be held on Friday, March 24th at Michael’s at the Grove in Bethel, CT at 6:30 p.m. This event is a great opportunity to get together with your friends (fishing and otherwise) and help raise some money for our youth education and conservation efforts. Most of this money will go towards supporting our Youth Education efforts. 

Tickets are now on sale and can conveniently be purchased online below for $55 per person. Raffle tickets are $20 per sheet. You can also RSVP to hold your seats and raffle tickets and pay at the door by emailing Kit Nielsen.

Ticket price includes hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, dinner buffet, and dessert. Each ticket will also receive a chip for a complimentary drink (beer, wine or soda). There will also be a cash bar.

We’ll be announcing our door prizes and auction items in the next couple of weeks. For a sample of the types of auction items we had last year, see the list below.
