Craig Boddington coming to Fundraiser


We are pleased to announce...

Every year, your Board works very hard to make our Chapter’s Annual Fundraiser even better.

This year is no exception as we are pleased to announce that SCI Life Member, professional hunter and world-renowned wildlife author, Craig Boddington, will be our special guest speaker. Craig has hunted throughout the world and will be joining us to share some of his experiences and give us some advice.

On Friday night, Craig will give a short presentation that will be free and open to the public. On Saturday, afternoon, Craig will give a 1-hour seminar, but that event will only be open to those who have purchased a ticket for Saturday night’s dinner and live auction, so it is important that you purchase your tickets early as Saturday night is sure to quickly sellout. Also, each night Craig will be at a booth signing copies of his new book, which can be purchased at the Fundraiser.  And, one lucky Saturday night bidder and up to 9 of his closest friends will join Craig and his wife Donna for a buffet breakfast at the JW Marriot on Sunday, February 14.

So, be sure to mark your calendars for this exciting opportunity!.
