Food’s the thing for the upcoming Fourth Annual Banquet for Birds & Blooms to benefit Friends of Rancocas Nature Center.

Early bird tickets are $35 before March 15 or $45 after.

The buffet will offer vegetarian options, and beer and wine are included. However, no outside alcohol is allowed.

“This casual dress event will again have a 50/50, gift baskets, raffles and a DJ with great dancing music,” FRNC Chair Rich Chichester said.

Moose Lodge No. 737 is located at 853 Woodlane Road in Mt. Holly.

Those interested in attending the event can purchase tickets in-person Tuesdays — Sundays, or mail check, payable to ‘Rancocas Nature Center’ at 794 Rancocas Road, Westampton, NJ 08060; or call 609–261–2495 to pay by credit card; or email info@rancocasnaturecenter.org.

“We want a wide variety of citizens to enjoy Rancocas Nature Center’s beauty, as well as its history, nature, and educational programming,” Chichester said. “It all helps us increase our fundraising base to keep the center open, so we’re always looking for new groups to include in our activities.”
