When Susan Samuelson heard about the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt and that it would benefit the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, she immediately said “I’m in.”
The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt, held Oct. 3-6, 2013, will provide a guided antelope hunt for 50 women in northeast Wyoming.
“When I heard about the hunt, I was struck by what a great idea it was,” Samuelson said. “This will benefit the women and girls of Wyoming while fostering something I think is extremely important — women’s mentorship.”
Samuelson is no stranger to the Wyoming Women’s Foundation. She is one of its first donors and a member of the Fab 5, a group of five visionary women who jump-started the organization’s grant making endowment. Samuelson saw early on the needs and benefits of investing in women and girls.
“There are many paths to success for our young women, and the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt illustrates strong values for these young women,” Samuelson said. “Hunting is part of Wyoming’s heritage and has a lot of meaning for people here. This event will create opportunities to share the Women’s Foundation message and to create lasting relationships for those who participate.”
As ranchers, Samuelson and her husband Doug share a love of the land and the Wyoming way of life that goes back for generations. Samuelson’s sister Carol McMurry is also a partner in the Warren ranch and a supporter of the Wyoming Women’s Foundation. The family is only the third in history to own the ranch, which contains an agriculture easement.
“We are so happy and proud to have the Warren Ranch as a platinum sponsor,” said Richelle Keinath, executive director of the Wyoming Women’s Foundation. “We are thankful for Susan’s visionary support and commitment to the future of Wyoming’s women and girls.”
