LARAMIE, WY- To those traveling across the state, Sinclair is known for their big green dinosaur. To the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt and other community organizations looking for support, Sinclair is known for their generosity.
Sinclair, a leader in oil and gas since 1916, has supported the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt since 2015. This year, Sinclair upped their commitment to this event and achieved the status of a Bronze Sponsor for the sixth annual Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt, hosted by the Wyoming Women’s Foundation. Their sponsorship shows understanding of hunting as a long-standing Wyoming tradition and the impact hunting can have on women as they strive to gain economic self-sufficiency.
With a focus on hunting, mentorship, and camaraderie, the 2018 hunt will bring together 40 hunters. The Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt will be held Oct. 11-14, 2018, at the Ranch at Ucross in northeast Wyoming. The event raises funds and awareness for the Wyoming Women’s Foundation. Since inception, the hunt has raised more than $345,000 for special projects to help women and girls work toward economic self-sufficiency across Wyoming.
“We have been continually impressed by Sinclair’s commitment to our hunt and to women in Wyoming,” says Director of the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, Rebekah Smith. “With support from organizations like Sinclair, we are making incredible strides in our mission to help women achieve economic self-sufficiency.”
Please visit the Wyoming Women’s Antelope Hunt web page 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. 12.
