Help support local conservation efforts by attending the Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation's largest yearly fundraiser at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds this Saturday, April 27

The Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation is preparing to host its largest fundraiser of the year to support of the non-profit conservation group’s numerous ongoing environmental and conservation projects in and around Moose Jaw throughout 2024.

The upcoming fundraiser event will take place Saturday, April 27, at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds with doors opening for cocktails starting at 5:30 p.m. and supper to follow at 7 p.m.

“If anyone is looking for another great night out and a way to support the branch, we have our annual fundraiser coming up on April 27,” confirmed Todd Smith, president of the Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation.

The primarily goal of the event is to raise proceeds to support the federation’s environmental initiatives in the area.

“We run all the programming out of the fundraising we do over the course of the year, (and) this happens to be our major event for the calendar year,” fundraising chair Kevin Steiner explained.  

The event is set to include live and silent auctions, games, raffles, door prizes, and several giveaways to provide something for everybody looking to support the federation’s ongoing projects.

A few of these projects include the Pheasants in the School program, Fish in the School (FinS), Classrooms on Ice, the Hamilton Flats Reclamation Project, and the Walleye Hatchery at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park.

The night’s meal will feature prime rib with all the fixings, and this will be provided by the Exhibition Ground’s dedicated catering company, Super Meats.

The live auction event will be led by Johnstone Auction Mart’s own Scott Johnstone, and Steiner said a number of outdoor-themed items will be up for bid including wildlife artwork and several pieces of outdoor equipment. To match this, a separate silent auction will concurrently be held throughout the night as well.

Steiner said a number of games will be held throughout the evening, and this should serve to liven things up a bit.

“We have a dart game that’s very successful,” he mentioned in one example. “People just love it every year.”

There will additionally be a penny parade, door prize, and a raffle for a fishing trip for four to Jen Lake Lodge and a number of firearms (exclusive to participants with valid licensing requirements of course).

“We’re very thankful for the people that give us donations,” Steiner said in a message of appreciation for the generosity of Moose Jaw’s past and present supporters.
