Rotary Club of Brandon prepares Wild Game Night fundraiser


Published:

PLANT CITY – The Rotary Club of Brandon is scaring up fauna and fowl for its 38th annual Wild Game Night at 6 p.m. Friday, April 25, at Lupton’s Boggy Bottom Ranch, 8407 Lupton Place.

Venison, quail and wild hog – and tamer varieties such as pork ribs and catfish – may be among the delicacies served at this men-only event.

Beverages will flow from the open bar stocked with top-shelf liquor, and men may purchase fresh-rolled cigars.

A silent auction will include items such as rifles; shotguns; camping, hunting and fishing gear; guided fishing trips and televisions. There will be drawings and door prizes, too.

“This is a great opportunity for fathers and sons to enjoy a night out together while helping local charities at the same time,” said David West, event chairman, said in a press release.

Wild Game Night is one of the Rotary Club of Brandon’s three main yearly fundraisers. Proceeds will benefit area nonprofit organizations: the Brandon Outreach Clinic, Emergency Care Help Organization and Rotary’s Camp Florida, which provides a safer camp experience for children with special needs and challenges. Previous Wild Game Night events have donated up to $50,000 to the charities.

To get a ticket, contact West, (813) 927-7174, Pat Skidmore, (813) 741-3790, or any Rotary Club of Brandon member. The suggested donation per ticket is $75.
