Once again HuntEmUp.com with another contribution to the Hunting Retriever Club
Already a “National Sponsor” of the Hunting Retriever Club HuntEmUp.com has once again upped the ante and committed to providing commemorative wristbands to the 2014 Hunting Retriever Club (HRC) Spring Grand being held in Georgia April 26th-30th 2014 and hosted by Old South HRC. Proceeds from the sale of these commemorative wristbands are donated to the HRC Foundation and are earmarked for the addition of new scholarships through the foundation. Last year because of this program and the donations from HuntEmUp.com, the HRC Foundation was able to award an additional scholarship at its National Meeting that was held in St. Louis, Missouri. This year’s Hunting Retriever Club National Meeting will again be held in St. Louis on June 14th. HuntEmUp.com is proud to be part of this program and glad to be able to give back to the youth of this organization with the hopes of keeping these youngsters involved in the Outdoors, the Sport of Hunting and campaigning some of the finest Retrievers in the country!
The Hunting Retriever Club’s Foundation also awards several grants and are primarily awarded to worthwhile animal health research projects at various universities and colleges.
