Second Century Habitat Fund gala
Saturday, June 3 • 5 p.m.
Denny Sanford Premier Center, Sioux Falls
South Dakota’s Second Century Habitat Fund (SCHF) is hosting a history-making gala will focus on raising awareness and financial resources for habitat and conservation work across South Dakota.
Sponsored by Pheasants Forever, this special evening will provide an opportunity to show passion and dedication to habitat for South Dakota, and support the great work of Second Century Habitat Fund. The evening will feature guest speaker Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty and an acoustic performance by the rising new country star Coffey Anderson. There will be live and silent auctions as well as raffle packages and a final chance to win the Ultimate Outdoor Package of a Toyota Tundra truck paired with an Alumacraft Boat.
“To my knowledge, there has never been such a big event focused solely on celebrating habitat and conservation in South Dakota, this gala is just a stepping stone in our fundraising efforts to continue to put quality habitat across the landscape of South Dakota,” SCHF Executive Director Brian Bashore said.
All proceeds from the gala event will go towards funding habitat conservation projects across South Dakota. By attending the event, guests will have the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing efforts to preserve and protect wildlife habitats for future generations.
