Big game, big prizes and lots of fun are promised at a hunting-themed fundraiser that will benefit veterans.

The American Legion Post 141 announces this year’s Hunter’s Ball. The Hunter’s Ball will be held Saturday, March 5 starting at 5 p.m. at the post location at 3625 W. Grand River in Howell.

Attendees are invited to come dressed in their best hunting gear to enjoy an evening that includes a DJ and professional chef carving up big game selections like venison, bison and elk. A salad bar and a vegetarian plate will also be available. First Vice Commander Armando Ramos said there will be several raffles throughout the evening for hunting-related prizes, including a raffle of cards from local vendor, Peacemakers. Participants can purchase a card for $20 and optionally walk away with one of Peacemakers’ 20 handguns or 10 rifles, with an average value of $500.

Tickets for the event are $35 and due to limited seating, should sell out quickly.

Proceeds from the event will help the post support Livingston County veterans. Ramos said they are working to find veterans or families of veterans in need and give them whatever help they can. It can be food, a walk, clothes or help in any other manifestation. Fundraisers like this have also helped the Post sponsor several families over the holidays recently, securing gifts and warm clothes for many who should have gone without.

To purchase tickets, contact the post office in person, by phone at 517-546-2534, or via their Facebook page.
