SCI Foundation Honored to Benefit from Media Event
Tucson, Ariz. – Safari Club International Foundation (SCI Foundation) is grateful to once again be the benefactor of the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show Media Day at the Range™. (www.media-day.com) Media Day at the Range™ takes place Monday, January 14, 2013 at the Boulder Pistol & Rifle Range in Boulder City, Nevada with over one thousand members of the outdoor and hunting media in attendance.
“The SCI Foundation is extremely thankful for the annual opportunity to congregate and share our hunter-conservationist mission with the members of the outdoor media,” said SCI Foundation President Joe Hosmer. “Every year the growth of the Media Day at the Range ™ has surpassed all expectations for attendance and highlighting the mission programs of SCI Foundation.”
“Our programs, like Sportsmen Against Hunger which delivers millions of meals to the homeless through the donation of game meat to food shelters, would not get the recognition they deserve without the exposure provided during the Media Day at the Range™,” added Bob Benson, Executive Director of SCI Foundation. “I also cannot imagine where a program like Sensory Safari would be in helping the visually impaired to ‘see’ wildlife through the sense of touch without the aid of events such as this. We applaud their efforts in making this day such a resounding success.”
Media Day at the Range™ is owned and operated by Triple Curl Public Relations and Advertising and CMG Marketing and Events. It offers exhibitors, such as Hornaday, Trijicon, Cabela’s and Swarovski Optik, unprecedented access to the media to spotlight their products. Over one thousand members of the media are pre-registered for next years’ event, making it the largest to date.
