The CFFU Annual Dinner and Fundraiser will be held at the Dante Club. The event will be open to members and their guests at 4 p.m. You can buy raffle tickets and start bidding on the silent auction items immediately.
Dress is casual. Men traditionally wear anything from nice fishing shirts and good jeans to suits. Women wear anything from nice jeans to dresses. Listen to Andy Penn's smooth jazz trio. The room and stage are filled with raffle and silent auction items.
Buffet style dinner is served at 6:00 p.m. Menu is TBA. Our professional auctioneer Justin Trick runs our live auction.
I hope to see you there! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call me.
