CFM Legacy Auction During Awards Ceremony

Al Vogt is passionate about engaging youth. So passionate that he donated his collection of guns to be auctioned off during the Legacy Auction on Friday, March 8th during the Awards Ceremony at the CFM Annual Convention. Social hour starts at 6:30 and the ceremony begins at 7:30. Join us and support our youth programs. No registration is required. 

A message from Al Vogt:

I am delighted about CFM’s focused programs to engage next generations of youth in the awareness and involvement in the conservation of our natural resources consistent with its Mission. 

That is why I am excited about donating my family collection of sporting guns and display cabinet for the Legacy Auction.
The proceeds from your generous bidding will be dedicated to specifically support CFM’s youth programs including the Conservation Leadership Corps (CLC) and the Missouri Collegiate Conservation Alliance (MCCA).

I hope those of you who bid high enough to take part–or all–of the collection home with you will both enjoy and use them to enhance your outdoor experiences with your children or grandkids. 

Thank you for making this so easy for me!  REMEMBER TO BID HIGH —  SUPPORT OUR YOUTH!!!
