The best way to keep traditions alive is to teach them to others. In Wyoming, there is a foundation that strengthens our outdoor community by hosting a women’s hunt. During this event, there will also be an auction to raise funds in support of women across the state.
Dinner and auction to raise funds to help women and girls across Wyoming
Laramie, Wyo. – The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt will hold an Oct. 7 dinner and auction at the Ranch at Ucross, located 17 miles northeast of Buffalo, to help raise funds for grants and special projects to help women and girls across the state.
The dinner starts at 6 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner at 7 p.m. and a live auction. Individual tickets cost $50, and corporate tables are available. Visit wyomingwomensantelopehunt.org for information about tickets, donating items to the auction or additional sponsorship opportunities.
Leading the way as the first event of its kind for women, the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt now is in its fourth year. So far the Antelope Hunt, as well as the annual dinner, has raised more than $200,000 for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation’s mission of supporting economic self-sufficiency for women and girls. This year’s hunt will be held Oct. 6-9 and will bring together 40 female hunters from across the nation for a weekend of hunting, mentorship, and camaraderie.
