Cutthroat Chapter of T.U. Hosts Annual Fundraiser Auction/Party
| September 13, 2017
Raffle Program & Auction Party

$100 for Excellent Chance to Win 20 Fabulous Prizes

The Cutthroat Chapter (CCTU) Fundraising program for 2016/17 is now fully underway. Once again it will consist of a Raffle program that starts now, and a September Fundraising Party that will include a Silent Auction, Fly auction, and numerous other ways to win some great prizes.

We are targeting a net of $12,000 raised from these programs, which will allow us to maintain the type of conservation programming we have always delivered. This represents the chapter's once-a-year fundraising effort, and without it, several key programs are at risk of being cut or greatly reduced, including the CSU Steve Bailey scholarship, CUSP grants, Trout in the Classroom, and River Watch Analysis programs.

The Raffle program will run from now, until we award the prizes at the September 21st Fundraising Party at Breckenridge Brewery. The program works similar to last year, but we are allowing more entries and have double the number of prizes!

Higher participation – 100 entries max
Lower ticket fee – $100
Double the number of prizes – 20 fabulous prizes…retail value of nearly $10k!
Winners announced at the 9/21 Fundraising Party – don't have to attend to win
TU members and non-members eligible
Each $100 = 1 raffle ticket…can win more than once with multiple tickets
Payment can be made three different ways
Monthly deduction via PayPal that totals $100 by Sept – can sign up on the CCTU website
$100 check to The Cutthroat Chapter of Trout Unlimited – contact Brian Young ( for mailing address
Credit Card payment – at monthly meetings via Brian Young or Allen Adinoff
