The Pere Marquette Watershed Council holds an Annual Fundraising Banquet each summer to provide for a great evening of catching up with old friends and meeting new ones while raising money for the Council. Hors d'oeuvres and a chef prepared buffet dinner provide for an enjoyable evening. 60 plus items are donated each year for the auction. They are divided into three categories – bucket raffles, silent auction and live auction items and displayed throughout the banquet room. Diners have the opportunity to bid on their favorites. Many items are one-of-kind custom items – many perfect for your north-woods cabin or cottage home as well as fishing gear for immediate use on the river.
