The 14th annual National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) Hunting Heritage Event, for the Madison County Chapter, is set for Saturday, Feb. 27 at the Madison County Central School cafeteria.
The doors will open at 5 p.m. Attendees will be able to begin bidding on the silent auction items, view the live auction items and play games at the raffle booths in order to win chances on the many firearms that will be given away during the night. Shotguns, rifles, turkey calls, artwork and other various items are available to win or purchase throughout the night. The seafood buffet will be served at 6 p.m. and will be followed by the live auction and drawings for the raffle winners. A total of 19 firearms were given away last year.
This is truly an event you don’t want to miss. Single ticket prices are $60 with couple tickets being sold for $100. Jakes tickets are only $25 and for those under the age of six, tickets are just $15. Sponsor tickets are $275 and sponsor couple tickets are $310.
The money from the ticket sales helps the NWTF conserve and enhance critical upland wildlife habitat and the conservation of the wild turkey. The money that is raised during the Madison County NWTF banquet that evening will stay in Madison County or go to the State of Florida Chapter.
