The 2010 Celebrity Hunt for a Cure, was held at the Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge in Pierre, South Dakota! This is a tremendous venue and the perfect location for your next personal or corporate excursion. Experience the best pheasant hunting in North America and support a venue that is helping Hunter's Dream raise money for the treatment of pediatric neurological diseases and supporting programs for kids and families dealing with special needs!
Frankly we don’t know what to say but the 8th Annual 2010 Celebrity Hunt for a Cure was nothing short of Amazing! The final numbers are in and we raised $127,000 (NET) with your tremendous support!!!
This was the first time that the Celebrity Hunt was hosted outside of Colorado and the Weinreiss Family welcomed us into their “Home” at Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge, with open arms! We can’t thank them enough for their generosity. The venue was first class to say the least. The food was amazing and the bird hunting & trap shooting was incredible.
Some of the most memorable moments were the private concert put on by Country Music Star Craig Morgan and the amount of money raised by the 5 SV10 Perennia III shotguns donated by Beretta. Craig also donated the guitar he played which was auctioned off for $7,000. Be sure to look for the hunt on the Outdoor Channel as it was filmed by Craig Morgan All Access Outdoors and on Versus on The World of Beretta.
Our foundation and this event have undoubtedly become our son Hunter’s Legacy. We have an incredible void in our life as a result of Hunter’s loss but with our son Brady and your help we are inspired to accomplish great things in Hunter’s name for children with neurological diseases and special needs! We see Hunter’s profound spirit in all of your actions and words!
We cannot thank you enough for your continued support. Because of the compassion and generosity that you have shown, Hunters Dream has been able to not only fund research for children with Sturge-Weber Syndrome and other neurological disorders but it has also funded many programs that benefit special needs children across the country. Once again, we are amazed by the generosity that we receive year after year from our celebrities, sponsors, volunteers and participants. We hope that you had a great time and we are anticipating many more to come!
If you didn’t make it out this year we hope you can make it next time. We can guarantee you a memorable time for a heartwarming cause!!! We hope to see you next year for the 9th ANNUAL CELEBRTIY HUNT FOR A CURE @ Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge!!!
