Annual Banquet and Fundraiser, Feb. 7, 2015

Murie Audubon Society’s Annual Banquet and Fundraiser is scheduled for February 7, 2015, at the Parkway Plaza. Cash bar will open at 5:30 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom. Raffle and Silent Auction items will be up for bid, with the banquet to follow.

Guest speaker will feature Tim Banks. The focus of Banks’ presentation will be Sandhill Crane:  Natural History and Behavior. Sandhill Crane migration begins in March as hundreds of Cranes converge on an 80-mile stretch of the central North Platte in Nebraska. An estimated 400,000 to 600,000 Cranes return annually to fatten up on empty cornfields on their journey to Arctic nesting grounds.

Banks guides Road Scholar Tour Groups every season to witness this well-orchestrated phenomenon. MAS extends an invitation to “Come Dance With Us”! Tickets are $27.50/ea. or $200.00 (table of eight) and are available from any Murie Audubon Board member or call Karen Anfang, Banquet Chairperson, 472-0278. Ticket sales close February 5th.

Banquet set-up will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the ballroom the afternoon of the February 7th; help is always welcome. Also a reminder, if you have any donations to be used as raffle or silent auction items, please call Karen Anfang, 472-0278. Your generosity is appreciated.
