Being the Banquet Chair for the South Metro Pheasants Forever Chapter, I know how important banquets are to conservation and hunting organizations. It is the only way these groups can raise money to fund their projects each year.
In my honest opinion, these events are a blast! And great ways to reward both the organizations and the attendees. These events rely heavily on donations and sponsors, and the generosity of the attendees.
I attended the Denver SCI Banquet last month with a few friends, and it did not disappoint! It was held at the gorgeous Sanctuary Golf Course in Caste Pines, CO. Dinner was delicious, the silent auction items were unique, and the raffle prizes were top-notch! My friends and I bought our fair share of tickets and bid on many silent auction items and live auction hunts! The three of us went home with some really great prizes, and even more, our funds went to a great cause.
If you're a hunter, if you're a conservationist, if you are a lover of the outdoors and our Second Amendment rights, then it is important to not just be a bystander. Get educated, get involved, and help organizations like SCI protect and extend the things we hold dear.
SCI and Sables help put on events for women and novices every year in Colorado. I've been fortunate enough to attend a few myself and look forward to continuing to support this great group.
If you want to get involved, but are not sure where to start, simply reach out! I'm always happy to have a conversation and get you connected to the right people! See you at the next event!
