The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt received a $25,000 donation from Uranium One Americas, a global company with operations in Wyoming. The hunt, held Oct. 3-6, 2013, at the Ucross Ranch, will raise money to support the mission of the Wyoming Women’s Foundation.
“Supporting local communities where our operations are located in Wyoming is a priority for Uranium One. I can’t think of a better way to invest in our future workforce than by supporting the Wyoming Women’s Foundation’s efforts to improve access to education and jobs for Wyoming women,” said Donna Wichers, Uranium One Americas president. “We are thrilled to be a sponsor of such an exciting, groundbreaking event. Many of our employees are avid hunters, including myself.”
The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt, hosted by the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, will provide a guided antelope hunt for 50 women. Event participants will hunt on scenic private lands in northeastern Wyoming with experienced guides. An emphasis will be placed on safety, hunting ethics, and social interaction.
Women who attend this event will have ample time for networking, taking part in some friendly competitions, and raising funds that will be used to invest in the economic self-sufficiency of women and the future of girls.
