The keynote speaker for the luncheon and live auction is Scott O’Grady, life-long hunter, distinguished fighter pilot, New York Times Bestselling author, and inspiration for the movie Behind Enemy Lines.
“Supporting the Hunter Defense Fund is about having a passion for protecting our hunting rights, and we are excited to have Captain O’Grady join us to share his experiences protecting our American freedoms,” said Hunter Defense Fund Chairman Jeff Kimbell. “Please join me and Captain O’Grady on February 8th for the Hunter Defense Fund luncheon and auction. We will celebrate America’s hunters, and Captain O’Grady will discuss the ways in which each American can make a difference for the next generation of outdoorsman and women.”
“I cannot think of a more important group to address than the Hunter Defense Fund,” said New York Times bestselling author Scott O’Grady. “Their goal of protecting the patriotic right to hunt in America is vital now, more than ever. I do not want to wake up one day without the ability to hunt, and HDF stands as the guardian of that right in Washington, D.C., to help me sleep at night. We really need everyone in the hunting community, both individuals and companies small and large to step up and support the Hunter Defense Fund.”
“All proceeds from the luncheon and live auction benefit the hunting community’s only Super PAC, the Hunter Defense Fund. This funding is vital so that the Hunter Defense Fund can be the first line of defense against the millions of dollars spent by anti-hunting zealots,” concluded Jeff Kimbell.
The second annual Hunter Defense Fund luncheon will open its doors at 11:30 a.m. and run until 1:00p.m., with both silent and live auction items. Any hunter or company concerned about the future of hunting can purchase a table. Please go to www.hunterdefensefund.org/luncheon to purchase tickets today.
