Central Wisconsin Fur, Fin, and Feather hosted the 4th annual Spring Banquet at Allison’s Steakhouse in Abbotsford, WI on March 10, 2012. The doors opened at 4pm to just over 150 attendees. Many of the folks attending this year’s banquet were both old friends and supporters, but there were many new faces again this year. Among those in attendance were the business owners that really make this event happen each year—this year we had 35 generous sponsors helping support our mission to leave it better than we found it…
Without Central Wisconsin’s generous businesses and individuals, CWF3 would not be able to put on such an amazing banquet with such impeccable odds year after year! This year we had over 50 guns in the room, some on raffle tables and a number of them given away as door prizes. Between a puppy with training, guided hunting and fishing trips, artwork, and the beautiful wood furniture on the auction block, there was something for everyone.
Every year, the CWF3 board of directors recognizes someone with the Dylan Crabb Award for going “above and beyond” in terms of promoting Wisconsin’s great outdoors or making the outdoors accessible to someone that may not have had the opportunity. Past winners include: Brent Decker, Jim Kimball and Brenda DuVall, and Kurt and Diane Benrud. However, this year’s winner was a little bit different than previous years’ winners. This year’s winner is just 25 years old, but has injected $1 million into our economy. Nearly every penny has been spent locally to benefit local youth and outdoorsman. This year’s Dylan Crabb Award winner was the Taylor County Sportsman’s Club. Learn more about TCSC.
The CWF3 board of directors is already looking forward to year 5, and have some surprises up our sleeves! Remember, this is your banquet and would love to hear what you liked about this year’s event and we also what to know how we can improve!
