Washington, DC — SCI launched "Share the Impact" to help support guides and outfitters negatively affected by the COVID-19 crisis that has caused untold numbers of hunts to be canceled for this year. The program includes an online auction of donated items and unique experiences, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to industry relief through outfitter associations. These associations can provide direct assistance to guides and outfitters, making the most of fundraising contributions for those most negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
SCI will continue to post new auction items weekly throughout the "Share the Impact" event, so be sure to stay tuned for more opportunities to bid on gear and adventures of a lifetime! Among this week's unveiling are three incredibly impressive items from a generous roster of donors:
