LARAMIE, WY- Warren Ranch, located near Cheyenne, WY, will be supporting the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt for the fifth consecutive year–this time with a gold-level sponsorship. Susan and Doug Samuelson, owners of the Warren Ranch, have been supporters of the event since the hunt’s inception in 2013.
The Samuelsons continue their sponsorship because they see the value the hunt holds within the Wyoming Women’s Foundation (WYWF), and they recognize the opportunity to partner with the organization in an effort to create change across Wyoming for women and girls. So far the hunt has raised more than $280,000 for grants and special projects that support the hunt and help fulfill WYWF’s mission.
“Warren Ranch is happy to sponsor activities that support the people and conservation of the state of Wyoming,” Susan said. “The Wyoming Women’s Foundation accomplishes both of those goals with the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt. We are proud that Wyoming hosts such a premier event for women,” she added.
In its fifth year, the country’s first all-women’s hunt will be held Oct. 12-15, 2017 and bring together more than 40 female hunters from across the nation at the Ranch at Ucross in northeast Wyoming. The event features a weekend of hunting, mentorship and camaraderie, as well as raising funds and awareness for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation.
Please visit the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt webpage at www.wyomingwomensantelopehunt.org for more information on sponsorship and individual participation, including scholarships. Based on their level contribution, each sponsor will have the opportunity to invite women to hunt at the event. The foundation is also seeking dinner sponsors and in-kind donations for its fundraising auctions on Oct. 13.
