The VOICE of Anglers and Hunters since 1928

26th Annual OFAH/GFC Conservation Dinner

Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority

Tickets Now Available

Port Hope – On Saturday, April 11th the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) will be holding their annual conservation dinner and auction at the Cobourg Lions Community Centre. Each year proves to be very successful and the Authority is anticipating another great event, with funds supporting the outdoor education program at the Ganaraska Forest Centre (GFC).

An average of 300 people take in the evening of great food, raffle draws, and both silent and live auctions; all showing their support for such a worthy investment. Auction items ranging from hand-sculpted art to weekend VIA Rail getaways, framed prints to wine packages, are taken home by guests who enjoy a night out mingling with fellow community members and supporters of the Conservation Authority and outdoor education centre.

The Forest Centre houses programs for over 8,000 students each year and holds many public programs for visitors of all ages from the surrounding communities. The 25-plus programs offered to the school children range from Outdoor Survival Skills to Alternative Energy, all meeting the Ontario educational curriculum and taught by Ontario-certified instructors.

Tickets are on sale now for this special evening at a price of $70.00 and must be purchased in advance. Get your tickets before March 11th and be included in the early-bird draw. For further information on supporting this annual event through donations or sponsorship, or to purchase tickets, please call the GRCA at 905.885.8173 or visit www.grca.on.ca.
