Pheasant's Forever Fund Receives Support

September 15, 2010

A dream remains a dream until someone steps up to the plate and makes the dream come true. 

How many of us take it for granted that we be hunting this fall? What if you were not here this fall? What if you physically could not get yourself to the woods and fields? Don’t you think it would be great if someone would lend a hand? That is exactly what we plan to do. 

Local Pheasants Forever Chapter 630 has started an endowment fund that will be used to provide a safe and quality outdoor oriented adventure for youth with a life-threatening illness or a severely limiting physical condition. Not just bird hunting but also various hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing or other suitable and available outdoor event or activity. Candidates will be selected from Elk and surrounding counties. We want to make this a memorable event for the kids. 

This is your chance to get involved. Please consider your tax deductable charitable donation to the Pheasants Forever Chapter 630 Youth Outdoor Fund. Don’t forget to ask your employer if they will match your donation to this cause. This would be great memorial to a hunting friend from the past. Pass this information on to another hunter. 

The PF Youth Outdoor Fund will recognize Founding Corporate Sponsors for those donating $500+ and Founding Individual Sponsors for those donating $250+. The deadline for Founding donations has been extended to the fall Pheasants Forever Chapter 640 Banquet slated for September 11, 2010 at the Red Fern in Kersey, PA. The following businesses have already made commitments as Founding Corporate Sponsors; North Star Aggregates, Woodbed Corp, W&W and Sons Contractors, Veolia Environmental Services, Burkes Home Center, Comtec Mfg. Inc. , C/G Electrodes LLC and Elk County Tool and Die.
Anyone may send a charitable donate to this fund to help us reach our goal of $100,000. Send your check to the Elk County Community Foundation FBO PF Youth Outdoor Fund, 111 Erie Avenue, PO BOX 934, St. Marys, PA 15857. Contact Jane Bryndel for more information at janebryndel@msn.com.

Thank you for helping the kids!
