86 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, November 27 - December 3, 1998 Eastern Sussex DU dinner set Dec. 4 .The Eastern Sussex Chapter 9 f Ducks Unlimited will hold its din- ner and auction on Friday, Dec. 4, at the BayCenter in Dewey Beach. The doors will open at 6 p.m. for refreshments; the dinner will be- gin at 7 p.m. There will be a silent auction before and during dinner as well as a live auction - featuring commemorative shotguns and ti- tles, waterfowl and wetlands art - following dinner. Dinner tickets, which include a one year&apos;s membership to Ducks Unlimited (DU), are $50 per per- son. Couples may attend for $80. Young people, 16 and under, may attend at a cost of $30. That price includes a Greenwing member- ship in Ducks Unlimited. The dinner and auction are the main fundraiser for the Eastern Sussex Chapter of Ducks Unlimit- ed, which sponsors a number of events through the year aimed at conservation and outdoors educa- tion. Today DU has raised more than $1.8 billion to conserve more than 8 million acres of vital wildlife habitat in the U.S., Cana- da and Mexico. The oganization states its mission as protecting, restoring and enhancing wetlands and other habitat for the benefit of North America's waterfowl. It sees its mission now as more im- portant than ever since the United States has lost 53 percent of its original wetlands and loses an es- timated 174,000 acres every year. Part of the proceeds raised at dinners held by more than 3,400 DU chapters throughout North America go to purchase wetlands in nesting and breeding areas of North America. Part of the pro- ceeds also go to assist local DU projects such as eradication of phragmites in marshes to enhance waterfowl habitat. For more information, contact Eastern Sussex Ducks Unlimited Secretary John Bateman at 856- 2561, Ext. 265, or 800-869-9968. Tickets are available at Big A Au- to Parts on Route 1,227-4035, or from committee members, includ- ing Eastern Sussex DU chapter chairman Sanford Hazzard, Allen Davis, John Hall, John Bateman, Dick Keck, Kim Brittingham, Jim Murphy, Bill Lingo, Chris Be°be, Milt Cooper, Nell McLaughlin, Bucky Buck and John Floyd.
