S.C. Wildlife Federation will celebrate 75th anniversary

Join South Carolina Wildlife Federation at the Moore Building on the South Carolina State Fairgrounds for the Wild Summer’s Nite 75th Anniversary Celebration, Auction, & Wild Game Feast on Aug. 5. Doors open at 6 p.m. for food, spirits, and a silent auction, as well as a live auction beginning at 8 p.m.

Enjoy a delicious feast of wild game, an open bar, the chance to socialize with friends and conservationists, and, of course bidding on great items in silent and live auctions. This annual event has offered unique items such as African hunting safaris, golf trips, framed artwork, fishing excursions, weekend getaways, and gift certificates to your favorite restaurants and stores.

Benefactor tickets are $175, which includes admission for two to the celebration and a chance to win the Diamond Grand Prize valued at $7500 (or cost equivalent). There are only 175 benefactor tickets available, so get them early.

General individual guest tickets are $75, but do not include chances at the grand prize drawing.
