Local Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation chapter hosts 31st annual auction

The Anderson Building played host to the Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation's 31st annual banquet and auction Tuesday.

Club member Ron Whitney said attendance was a bit low this time, but those that did show would be directly benefiting two main areas: youth outdoor programs and landowners.

Chief Wildlife Biologist Nick Prough said another goal of the local chapter -- and another source for donated money to benefit -- was the conservation and management of habitat.

Live and silent auctions accompanied dinner, and door prizes were also awarded. The three top-selling items were a guided pheasant hunt in South Dakota for $1,700; a set of four truck tires donated by Express Tire for $675; and a Traeger Grill for $650.

Fundraising totals are pending.
