South Carolina Wildlife Federation hosts auction, wild game feast Aug. 28

The South Carolina Wildlife Federation is counting down the days until its annual WILD Summer's Nite Auction and Wild Game Feast and hopes people from all over the state will join the untamed entertainment on Saturday, Aug. 28.

Held at the Medallion Center at 7309 Garner's Ferry Road, the WILD Summer's Nite Auction & Wild Game Feast begins at 6 p.m. when doors open for food, spirits, socializing, games and more. A silent auction kicks off the evening at 6 p.m., followed by a live auction beginning at 8 p.m.

Guests will enjoy a unique feast of wild game including venison, quail, catfish, and duck as well as chicken and vegetarian dishes. Thanks to generous donors, admission to the Wild Summer's Nite Auction & Wild Game Feast includes all-you-can-eat food catered by Tronco's. Sweets and spirits will also be included with a chocolate fountain and open bar. This social event permits guests the opportunity to mingle with friends and fellow conservationists.

The silent and live auctions will be some of the main highlights of the evening with a wide variety of items to bid on. There are original works of art, hunting and fishing excursions, guided river and kayak tours, golfing packages, fishing equipment, chartered boat trips, something for the ladies, and much more. There are literally hundreds of items to choose from—something for everyone.

Only 150 Benefactor tickets are sold each year with excellent odds of walking out the door with the grand prize of $3,000. Ten Benefactor stubs will be drawn at the event for prize packages valued at $150 or higher. The 11th ticket drawn that evening will be the grand prize winner. Benefactor tickets are available for $160 each and include a complimentary guest ticket. However, guest tickets are available for general admission at $60 each.

The South Carolina Wildlife Federation, the state's oldest and largest membership conservation group, and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) have a longtime partnership in wildlife conservation. Formed in 1931 to find ways to reverse the trend of dwindling game and fish populations and to promote outdoor ethics and stronger conservation laws, the South Carolina Wildlife Federation is still a strong proponent of its original values in addition to resolving today's pressing environmental issues.
