Sudbury Club Wins Twice with Fundraising Success

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 17, 2014) - At the 86th Annual General Meeting and Fish & Wildlife Conference of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), held March 13 -15, 2014 in Mississauga, the Sudbury Game and Fish Protective Association (SGFPA) was honoured. The club was awarded the Windsor Sportsmen's Club trophy in recognition of their success in raising funds through the OFAH Conservation Lottery.

The Windsor Sportsmen's Club trophy was created by that club to acknowledge the OFAH member club selling the second largest number of tickets for the lottery. SPGFPA sold an incredible 635 books of tickets for the 39th annual lottery, some of the proceeds of which helped to fund local conservation efforts, making them double winners.

"When we see and experience first-hand the many conservation projects that have benefitted from the efforts of OFAH member clubs, like the Sudbury Game and Fish Protective Association, it gives us a great sense of pride and accomplishment," said OFAH President Bill Blackwell.

Each year, OFAH member clubs across the province vie for the honour of being one of the top ticket sellers for the highly popular OFAH Conservation Lottery.

The OFAH also acknowledged the outstanding efforts of the Halton Sportsmen's Club which finished in third place, the National District Headquarters Fish and Game Club which finished fourth and the South Central Ontario Fish and Wildlife Association Inc. which took fifth place.

With over 100,000 members, subscribers and supporters, and 720 member clubs, the OFAH is the province's largest nonprofit, fish and wildlife conservation-based organization, and the VOICE of anglers and hunters. For more information, visit www.ofah.org.
