If you have been a regular reader of Serve Daily, you have seen almost monthly articles about the wonderful and often amazing hunting and fishing events of the Chairbound Sportsman Organization.

Their motto sums up their purpose very well “Making Outdoors Possible” for youth with terminal illness, wheelchair bound persons, disabled veterans, and wounded warriors. The Chairbound Sportsman has something scheduled for the handicapped almost every month and sometimes twice a month free of charge and with volunteer help.

Their 11th annual fundraising banquet is scheduled for Feb. 22 at the Provo Elks Lodge, 1000 South, University Ave.

This is a multi-purpose banquet that is a social event for disabled sportsman and the volunteers who offer their time and resources to serve the physically challenged in our community. The banquet also serves as the primary fundraising event of the year, with donated items auctioned off to finance the good deeds of the organization.

All donations are tax deductible as the Chairbound Sportsman is a recognized non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. That means some nice items have been donated and will continue to be donated until the evening of the banquet. If you have an item or service that you would like to donate contact David Vaughn at 801-499-9770. Tickets for the banquet can be purchased as an individual package, couples’ package, and corporate table for $45, $90, and $460 from the Chairbound Website www.chairboundsportsman.org. The doors open at the Provo Elks Lodge for the banquet at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m.

If you know of someone who is disabled and would enjoy target practice, hunting, or fishing with other disabled sportsmen, invite them to the Chairman Sportsman Banquet. Pass the word about what this organization does for the physically challenged sportsman in our community. Seating at the 11th annual Chairbound Sportsman Banquet is limited, if you would like to attend order your tickets at www.chairboundsportsman.org or call David Vaughn at 801-499-9770.
