We are sharing our story with you today to ask for your financial support or donations towards our upcoming annual dinner -fundraiser. We use the funds raised that one evening to support all our programs for 2019.

Exciting things happened with our club in the past three years. At our January 2016 fundraiser, our guests in attendance contributed funds to a special project. We successfully raised enough money in less than ten minutes to buy a young outdoorsman a Track Chair so that he will be able to pursue his hunting, fishing and outdoor experiences beyond his wheelchair.
Our selection process was exhausting, but an 18-year-old quadriplegic from Boise ID was our lucky recipient. It is an amazing feeling to be able to give this gift to a young man that lost his use of his limbs do to an injury in football at such a prime time in his life. At our January 2017 fundraiser in minutes we did it again and have the funds to give another candidate a track chair that will change their way of enjoying the great outdoors.
The recipient of our second track chair lost his use of his legs due to an automobile accident involving a drunk driver. He is a husband, father of two daughters, owner of a ranch. The track chair allows him to get to the barn, watch his daughter in the rodeo circuit plus go turkey hunting and fishing again.
This third year we have received over 17 applications. That is almost 5 times the amount of applications we received our first year. We will be making our final selection in the next few weeks. Our committee is very excited to see what our next year will bring.
We are preparing now for our 11th Annual Fundraiser scheduled for February 9th, 2019 at the Davenport Grand Hotel in downtown Spokane, WA. Our doors open at 4:30pm. We will be having raffles, a silent auction and live auction with a dinner and dessert auction. We will be announcing our donors throughout the evening and printed in our evening literature. If you have any questions about our organization, I would be happy to answer your questions.
This upcoming year we have reduced our evening dinner ticket to $60 per adult, $30 per child. We will continue to have the same type of auction evening as in the years prior.
On behalf of the Northwest Sportsmans Club, I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for considering a donation to our cause.
