Our Next Chapter Event
Saturday, January 25th, 2014: Hunt Primer & Dinner Concert at Rustlers’ Rooste in Phoenix
The Phoenix Chapter is excited to offer our members something new and exciting by combining a Bluegrass/Country Dinner Concert with the Annual Hunt Primer presentation and banquet at Rustlers' Rooste Restaurant in Phoenix. The McMillan Rifle Raffle drawing will also take place at intermission. The Hunt Primer will be a short presentation by Juan Toquero of Madrid about hunting in Europe and Spain.
The concert will be performed by Joe Bethancourt, well-known local performer and Member of the Arizona Music Hall of Fame. Joe plays more than 65 different instruments, and his music ranges from Folk to Bluegrass, from Country to Celtic, and from "Old Timey" to uniquely his own and more. He was inducted into the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame on March 30, 2013. Our Master of Ceremonies for the evening will be Mike Broomhead of KFYI 550 AM. Money raised from this fun event will be used to fund a Purple Heart Soldier Javelina Hunt, a Purple Heart Soldier Deep Sea Fishing Trip, and several other annual Phoenix Chapter SCI Conservation & Humanitarian projects

Wounded Warrior Fishing Trip:
In June 2013 Phoenix SCI participated in an adventure to take 12 wounded warriors from our state of Arizona to San Carlos Mexico on a fishing extravaganza. In conjunction with other supporters we provided the outdoor experience of a lifetime for these wounded warriors. They fished for Dorado, Marlin, and Sail Fish.

SCI Lion Fund Donation:
The African lion. King of beasts, symbol of Safari Club International. Humans have instinctive admiration of and respect for this majestic creature. When encountered on a hunt, it is a duel of predator vs. predator. It has been that way since the beginning. Without our help, it may soon end. The Phoenix Chapter was the second largest contributor of all SCI chapters for the Save The Lion Fund. SCI has raised over 1 million dollars in an effort to defend the African Lion from a global anti-hunting onslaught.
American Wilderness Leadership School:
Established in 1976 with the vision of providing educators with a useful hands-on experience that they can bring home to their classrooms, AWLS has provided an accredited wildlife management program for 5,473 teachers who reach more than a million students annually, and a challenging experience for 1,338 students. The Phoenix Chapter provided funding to send a teacher from Surprise, AZ to participate in the AWLS Camp in Jackson, WY. The purpose of this project is to provide educators with outdoor skills and educational tools to bring to life in their classrooms. For more information about the AWLS, click here.
International Wildlife Museum:
2013 marks the 25th year for the SCIF museum, and the beginning of the 31st year of your very own Phoenix Chapter's existence. We are proud to have been the only Diamond Level Sponsor ($5,000) of the upcoming renovations to the museum. To see the sponsor list, click here.
Safari Club International Donation:
You might not be aware of it, but 30% of your Phoenix Chapter's net profits from the annual fundraiser are donated to the SCI National organization. Your Chapter is actually chartered as a 501c-3 non-profit, under the charter of the SCI Foundation.
