2015 Phoenix Chapter Fundraiser
The 2015 Phoenix Chapter Fundraiser held on Saturday, May 16th, 2015 at the Buttes Resort was a huge success! Thank you to all who supported the Phoenix Chapter by attending or bidding online.
For the second year in a row, the Phoenix Chapter is proud to announce that we have won the Chapter of the Year Award. The Phoenix Chapter Board of Directors thanks all of our Members and Supporters for making this achievement possible.
PROJECTS THE PHOENIX CHAPTER SUPPORTS
Nakalanda Project Benefit Golf Tournament:
The Phoenix Chapter sponsored the Nakalanda Project through a benefit golf tournament held at the Legacy Golf Club on March 7, 2014. The main goal for this golf tournament was to raise enough money to buy a piece of land and dig a clean water well in the village. This will supply clean water to the clinic, school and village. In addition to the need for water, other current necessities include improvements to schools, upgraded medical supplies for the clinic, and a new ablution pit latrine.
Arizona Outdoor Adventures:
Your donations to the Phoenix Chapter help support the mission AOA mission of providing today's youth with high-quality, safe, and wholesome activities. AOA provides 3-5 adventures per year for 8-10 children at a time. Participants are provided an outdoor experience including jeep rides, fishing, hiking, camping, and much more.

AZ Game & Fish Youth Pheasant Hunt:
Your donations to the Phoenix Chapter helps support a weekend of pheasant hunting for 50 children. The children are able to harvest two pheasants while hunting with a dog, handler, and two volunteers. The weekend provides an outdoor hunting, camping, and overall fun experience. The next Youth Pheasant Hunt will be January 4th & 18th, 2014. Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated. For more information, click here.
AZ Game & Fish Outdoor Skills Camp:
Your donation to the Phoenix Chapter helps support our annual outdoor weekend squirrel hunt. The event provides hiking, fishing, nature walks, and squirrel hunting for 50 participants.

Purple Heart Veteran's 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.

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.
