The Bottling Plant Event Center in downtown Opelika will host a fundraising banquet Sept. 27 for the East Alabama Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.
During the event, patrons can expect an evening full of food, fun and entertainment, as well as tables of hunting gear and accessories for purchase. Attendees who purchase tickets are automatically entered into a 7-gun drawing contest.
Headquartered in Edgefield, South Carolina, the NWTF is a “private, non-profit conservation and education organization founded in 1973 with a mission dedicated to conserving wild turkeys and preserving our hunting heritage,” according to a post on its website. The group has more than 250,000 members in 16 different countries worldwide.
Individual tickets are $75 each, and there are other ticketing options that will be available for the event.
