Feb 17 – GBTU 46th Annual Conservation Banquet

The Green Bay Trout Unlimited (GBTU) Annual Conservation Banquet is where we raise almost all of our revenue. It is what allows us to do all the incredible things we do.

Last year, due to Covid, we were unable to hold our premier fundraiser. After careful consideration, we have decided to bring it back this year !

If this is your first Conservation Banquet, you are in for a treat. If you have been there before, you know what I am talking about. Our banquet is a fast-paced event featuring something for everyone. We have cash, bucket and special raffles. We have silent and live auctions. There are chances at door prizes. The food is wonderful, the company is fantastic and the atmosphere is amazing !

Your ticket includes all of this plus dinner.
