Ready for a fun family night out that is all for a good cause?

This Saturday, the 8th Maine Youth Fish and Game Association will host an Auction and Dinner, with proceeds to help fund youth programs and events.

Events like this make summer camp more affordable for all, and financially more accessible for more kids by helping to keep camp attendance costs lower. Also to fund family ice fishing winter.

MYFGA Board President Mike Regan explained the purpose of the club

We are trying to preserve our outdoor heritage for the next generation and pass along our knowledge and passion for the outdoors to our youth as they are glued to their electronics. The club and the fundraising are for more than just hunting and fishing. Our objective is to enhance Maine’s most precious and valuable resources. Our Youth and our Outdoors.
