2017 Trout Unlimited (WestSlope Chapter) Gala

Register & Buy Tickets

Fishermen know how to throw a party!

Hundreds of conservationist and avid fishermen showed up for the 2017 Trout Unlimited West Slope Chapter annual banquet.  They were treated to fine food, compelling and informative information from the Chapter leadership and celebrated some achievement awards for their members.  They also successfully out-performed the fundraising goals for the chapter through their generosity and belief in the mission of the West Slope Chapter of Trout Unlimited.  Chapter Members and potential members donated cash and purchased auction items at the event with open and appreciate generosity that can only be attributed to a true belief in the Trout Unlimited Mission.  LM Auctions was enormously happy to have been invited to be a part of such a successful auction event!
