Apr 16, 2011/Lander, Wyoming/ – Global Sporting Safaris, Inc. (GSS) is pleased to announce that the Lander, WY, Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Big Game banquet raised over $3,050 for wildlife and habitat conservation through our hunting trip donation program. Their annual dinner event was held at the Lander Community Center in Lander, Wyoming on April 16th, 2011. A group of dedicated volunteers and chairperson, Bill Durnal, put together an outstanding event. The Red Canyon (Lander) Chapter was the first Wyoming RMEF Chapter to raise over $100,000 in 2011! Jim Tonn, RMEF Wyoming Regional Director, assisted the committee in preparation as well as the evening’s events.
Global Sporting Safaris’ Katie Luthy of Sheridan, volunteered at the event and donated New Zealand and Argentina big game safaris.
“The Lander RMEF committee and volunteers are dedicated wildlife warriors! Year after year I’ve seen them raise big dollars for the RMEF, and this year was no different. In 2010 the three hunts I donated brought in over $7000 profit to this chapter. This year GSS helped the Lander RMEF raise over $3000 from our hunt donation program. That’s over $10,000 in two short years!”says Katie Luthy, Global Sporting Safaris consultant.
Global Sporting Safaris has already helped raise over $52,100 for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation in recent years. Hunt donations, though limited, are still available for other RMEF chapters across the nation.
“We have put together three high quality hunting donations that allows Global Sporting Safaris (GSS) to give back to the ‘not for profit’ organizations that help to promote our industry and our passion,” says Rick Kennerknecht, CEO of Global Sporting Safaris.
Global Sporting Safaris (GSS) makes theses donations available to 501c3, 501c4 or 501c6 organizations and there are a limited number of hunting trips available each year. The outfitters in this fundraising program offer 5-Star accommodations, excellent hunting areas, professional staff, exquisite local cuisine and trophy quality animals. We have personally visited each outfitter to assure quality and a positive experience for our clients. Details can be found at www.gssafaris.com/fundraising
