PLANT CITY — The Brandon Rotary Club will host its 38th annual Wild Game Night at 6 p.m. April 25 at Lupton's Boggy Bottom Ranch, a wooded outdoor event venue at 8407 Lupton Place off Keysville Road.

Each year, the men-only fundraiser draws a crowd with the offer of expertly prepared wild game, including venison, quail and wild hog as well as domestic fare like pork ribs and catfish.

The event also features an open bar and authentic Ybor City cigars rolled at the site.

As in past years, a highlight of the evening is the chance to win thousands of dollars' worth of items through silent auctions, raffle and door prizes.

Chairman David West said many men annually attend Wild Game Night because it offers a rare chance to get together with friends they haven't seen in years.

All proceeds from Wild Game Night are donated to local charities including Rotary's Camp Florida, the Brandon Outreach Clinic and the Emergency Care Help Organization, which provides food and clothing to east Hillsborough County residents with emergency needs.

In past years, the event has raised $40,000 to $50,000 for local charities.

Donations for tickets are $75 and are available from any Brandon Rotary Club member or by calling West at (813) 927-7174 or Pat Skidmore at (813) 741-3790.
