U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) will host a Guns and Cash Bash, an evening of fun and fundraising to benefit elk and other wildlife, during the Kentucky Outdoor Life/Field & Stream Expo in Paducah, Ky., on Saturday, January 18 at the McCracken County Convention & Expo Center.
The evening will begin with a cocktail social at 7:00 p.m., with hors d'oeuvres served at 7:30 p.m., followed by drawings for firearms, cash, and more. Tickets are $25 per person and require a separate ticket from regular admission to the Kentucky Outdoor Life/Field & Stream Expo.
Activities during the Guns and Cash Bash will raise funds to benefit RMEF’s conservation mission of ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.
“Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation events are a good time for a great cause because the money raised goes back on the ground to fund conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects right here in Kentucky,” said Aaron Powell, RMEF regional director. “The funds we generate also help elk herds and wildlife habitat as well as conservation and hunting heritage projects all across elk country.”
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation maintains that Hunting Is Conservation and hunting is a major revenue driver for America’s conservation efforts both locally and nationally. Funds generated in the last year from hunting licenses and fees, excise taxes and donations to wildlife conservation groups like RMEF amounted to more than $2 billion. That money goes on the ground to benefit wildlife and wild places.
Since 1984, RMEF and its partners completed more than 12,000 conservation and hunting heritage projects that protected or enhanced more than 7.5 million acres of habitat for elk and other wildlife. RMEF also opened or improved access to more than 1.2 million acres of public land for Americans to hunt, fish, hike and use for other forms of recreation. Additionally, RMEF assisted to successfully restore to their historic range in Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Virginia, West Virginia and Ontario, Canada.
