The Clinton Valley Chapter has been busy for the last year with several different events and projects. Be it chapter outings, a full schedule of outstanding chapter meetings, hosting Southeast Michigan’s annual TU Holiday Social or numerous conservation projects… Clinton Valley volunteers have been working very hard.
So how does a small local non-profit organization afford to do everything on our schedule? Simple… the Clinton Valley Annual Banquet for Conservation.
Our chapter will host our largest fundraiser of the year on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
As in year’s past, the banquet will be held at the River Crest Banquet Facilities (900 W. Avon Rd., Rochester Hills, MI 48307).
Doors will open to the public and cocktails will begin being served from our open bar at 5:30PM. A fantastic buffet-style dinner will be served at 7:00PM. For those of you who attended our banquet last year, you will be pleased to hear that we have continued our theme of a small vendor show located in the prize room. We intend on having some great vendors this year for attendees to talk with.
Banquet attendees will once again have an opportunity to mingle with other like-minded anglers and river stewards while enjoying a fun-filled evening with the Clinton Valley Chapter. Throughout the evening attendees will have several different ways to win some very interesting items in our various raffles. There will be silent auctions, bucket raffles, card raffles, and various door prizes for the evening that will appeal to both anglers and their spouses.
Last year banquet attendees enjoyed participating in raffles for over $13,000 worth of different items that were donated to our chapter. This year our Banquet Committee is working hard to make the raffle prizes even more exciting. Some of the prizes include a hand crafted custom bamboo fly rod by Ron Barch paired with a special matching reel, guided float trips and lodge stays, numerous pieces of artwork and many, many more items of general interest.
The Clinton Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited understands if members are unable to attend due to personal conflicts. However, in order to allow for all of our members to help raise funding for conservation projects in our watershed we have set up several options for donations. As a concerned river steward, we invite you to join one of Clinton Valley’s donorship clubs.
