In five short years, the Highlands Ranch Chapter has already established itself as one of the Top 100 DU fundraising chapters in the U.S., and the number three chapter in Colorado, based on last year’s fundraising proceeds.  The Highlands Ranch Chapter will hold its sixth annual banquet May 5 at The Wildlife Experience in Parker, Colo. Doors will open and complimentary cocktails will be served at 5p.m., with a steak dinner to be served at 7 p.m.

The banquet makes for a fun evening with many opportunities to win great trips and merchandise.  There will be numerous raffles and drawings, as well as a silent auction and live auction.  There will also be young sportsmen and ladies raffles. The fundraiser will help Ducks Unlimited continue its vital conservation work on behalf of Colorado’s wetlands and waterfowl.

Ticket prices are $75 per person and $110 per couple. (Reserved tables of 10 are also available for $750 and corporate tables for $1,000.) This includes all event costs and a DU annual membership. Space is limited, and the committee strongly recommends purchasing tickets in advance to guarantee your participation. For more info or to purchase tickets in advance, please visit http://www.duhighlandsranch.org.
