The local chapter of Ducks Unlimited held their annual fundraiser on Saturday with plenty of skookum raffle prices and silent and live auction items on sale.

Here are three images of the dinner we thought you would enjoy.

One of the liveliest, and friendliest competitions was between Patti Matsushita (left) and Sue Leach who were both very, very vocal about who should win these supremely comfortable backyard lounging chairs and the picnic basket, which were drawn for at the end of the evening. As Patty and many other patrons held their breath, the chairs went to... Sue Leach who could barely restrain her surprise and glee. David F. Rooney photo
