Fall Classic

WHAT: Warsaw Lions Fall Classic

WHEN: October 7th, 5:00 pm

WHERE: at the Bott Community Center in Warsaw.

Introduction: the Fall Classic is an outdoors/wildlife EXTRAVAGANZA…for Men/Women/Young Adults.

The Lions Fall Classic is a wildlife/outdoors banquet set apart from all other wildlife banquets. Men and women alike will enjoy the variety of unique items available for raffle and auction. Sponsors and items are being added daily!

Pair the opportunity to acquire uniquely awesome items (including hunts/trips/gear/art/more) along with a full LARGE rib-eye steak dinner, all the fixins, with plenty of refreshments included, and you’ve got an unforgettable evening! This isn’t your run of the mill banquet/auction!

WHY? The vast majority of the proceeds will stay in the area to fund programs for outdoor youth opportunities. The Warsaw Lions are building for the future…right here and now! We’re working with Warsaw Schools to build an Archery in the Schools Program, with Illinois DNR to host Hunter Safety Courses right here in Warsaw, and with WIU to create outdoor experiences that will create memories and healing opportunities for Heroes of the Wounded Warrior Project. Experiences and education that today’s kids will be able to pass on to the youth of tomorrow. Experiences for the Warriors who make our way of life possible.

Tickets: $40 each, $70 for couple
