The 2019 Charlie 22 Outdoors Dinner Banquet will be August 24, at Carterville Christian Church. Doors open at 5 pm. Dinner at 6 pm.
The 2018 banquet was a tremendous success with over 300 in attendance. We are planning on 400 this year.
At the banquet there will be raffles, and both live and silent auctions. All funds raised go directly towards our events. We have NO paid staff and our board of directors are all volunteers. The dinner banquet is coming together nicely with many local groups donating items for us to auction and raffle that evening. Donations vary from household items, to oil changes, to meat packages, to hunting equipment and guns, and to different outdoor activities.
Your willingness to help out would be amazing. Would you consider donating for us to raffle or auction at the banquet? Whatever you can give will be a blessing. Even if you cannot donate 100%, is there a chance you can offer it discounted enough that it still raises some funding after expenses are covered. For example, some donors are offering hunts for soldiers to be auctioned. It raises money for us, and provides a service like we offer. As stated earlier, all money raised goes directly to serving others. If you have any items to donate, please let us know. We will gladly advertise for you through our various social media, on our website, through our hundreds of email contacts, and even our TV campaign and interviews. But even if you cannot offer a donation, please pray over our event. We always need prayer that we are doing God’s work. Whatever capacity you get involved in, please know we are grateful.
Also, there are 20 opportunities for table sponsorships. These sold quickly last year. We originally offered 8 tables, but demand was high so we ended up with 14 sponsored. They are $500 each and can sit 6 people. Each sponsorship will receive 1 piece of Charlie 22 Gear for each member of the party. Each table sponsorship will be placed in a drawing specifically for the 20 tables. Winners get one of 10 different guns. 20 sponsorships, 10 guns available. That is a 50/50 chance.
