Western Montana Chapter SCI Annual Banquet Information
2016 marks the 17th year for the Western Montana Chapter of Safari Club International’s (SCI) Annual Banquet. From humble roots and less than 100 attendees, the event has grown to an average of nearly 350 participants over the past few years. A 501(c)4 organization, the Western Montana Chapter of SCI has funded numerous conservation, humanitarian and education efforts throughout the years.
These efforts are made possible through the generous support of our members and interested businesses and organizations. 100% of our income is used by SCI, with at least 70% staying here locally. When we apply for matching grants from SCI National we keep even more!
That being said, we generally keep about 85% of our funds to use on projects we select. In fact, since 1996, we have participated in projects totaling over $1.8 million by leveraging the direct contributions raised by our members through events such as our Annual Banquet! This year, hunters don’t want to miss headliner, Bob Foulkrod. From Stars of Orion Entertainments “Winchester Legends”! Oh the stories he will tell!
Learn how Foulkrod has made it his mission to share this knowledge so others can become better sportsmen. Foulkrod is a man for all seasons, a consummate professional who eats, lives and breathes the sport of hunting! He is just one of the gang! If you have attended one of our banquets in the past, you are well aware of the effort we put forth to get quality items that you will enjoy.
In addition to items listed online, you will find our general raffle, silent and live auctions filled with gear and products from Ammo & More, Kennetrek, Sitka, Cabela’s, Kuiu, Mathews, Bowtech and more. After a fun and exciting evening, we take the money we raise and put it right back into Montana! Join us at the Hilton Garden Inn ‐ Missoula on April 2, 2016. Doors open at 4:00 pm, dinner is served at 6:30 pm. Dinner tickets are $50 per person or $90 for two and can be purchased online at www.westernmtsci.org.
