Chukar Club will hold fundraiser raffle and auction this Saturday

The Carson Valley Chukar Club fundraiser will take place Saturday at Douglas County Fairgrounds on Pinenut Road in Gardnerville. This year marks 20 years of commitment and dedication to making a difference in outdoor opportunities that everyone enjoys and more importantly, taking those steps necessary so that our children will have the same, if not better, opportunities.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and the program starts at 7 p.m. The event includes a tri-tip dinner with salad and homemade beans, raffle and auction with quality rifles and shotguns, fishing equipment, wildlife art and an array of other outdoor equipment.

Tickets are $25 per person. They are $15 for anyone under 18 years of age, but they must be accompanied by a person over 18. Tickets are available at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, 1625 8th Street, Minden. The cost of the admission ticket includes a year’s membership.

Last year the Carson Valley Chukar Club donated $10,000 to the Nevada Natural Heritage Program. This is a project that utilizes satellite mapping imagining that identifies critical animal habitat that would be endangered by wildfires and subsequent cheatgrass growth.

This is a multi agency effort that includes the BLM, the Forest Service and the Nevada Biodiversity Initiative. Non-federal matching funds are being paid for by several wildlife organizations.

The CVCC also donated $1,400 for the NDOW Ruff Grouse Translocations Project and $2,120 to Advanced Telemetry Systems used to monitor and track sage grouse that will great assist NDOW. CVCC continues to support area youth by donating $1,000 to the annual fishing derby and by supporting the hunter safety programs.
