The Thunder Basin Chapter of the Mule Deer Foundation is hosting its annual banquet Saturday, May 11 at the Camplex Equality Hall. The 6th annual event will feature dinner catered by Chophouse Restaurant, games, prizes and fun for the whole family.
Last year, the chapter raised almost $7,000 for a local youth day event and various projects around the state designed to help Wyoming’s struggling mule deer herds.
Chapters like the Thunder Basin Chapter of the MDF are helping to raise money to fund research projects and invest in habitat restoration that will hopefully help to build mule deer herds around the state.
“We hope what we are doing here on a small scale will help mule deer across the state on a larger scale,” said Ben Casey, chapter chairman. “It’s important that we work to improve mule deer habitat, so people for generations to come will be able to enjoy seeing one of the state’s most majestic creatures.”
Saturday’s event will include a live auction, silent auction and a variety of games for adults and kids alike. The doors open at 4:30 p.m. and dinner is served at 6 p.m. Tickets are $95 for a couple, $65 for a single and kids 12 and younger are free. For more information, contact Ben Casey at 307-689-5386.
