OUTDOOR WRITERS OF KANSAS RAISE FUNDS FOR YOUTH PROGRAMS
May 2 auction raises scholarship money for Outdoor Adventure Camp
PARSONS — Looking for some bargains on fishing, hunting, and camping equipment? Plan on attending the Outdoor Writers of Kansas (OWK) fundraising auction May 2 at the City Municipal Building, 112 South 17th Street in Parsons. The event will start at 7:30 p.m.
Among items up for bid will be two free nights of lodging at Timberhill Lodge (a $300 value), a Bushnell range finder, rods and reels, lots of soft-plastic fishing lures, soft-sided tackle boxes, camping equipment, books, and more.
OWK is an organization with members who promote the Kansas outdoors through writing, photography, broadcast, and art. Members get together for fall and spring conferences, and to raise money for programs designed to get youth outdoors. Proceeds from the spring auction help send underprivileged kids to the Kansas Wildlife Federation’s weeklong Outdoor Adventure Camp in June.
