SCI Recognizes the Georgia Chapter
The Georgia Chapter of Safari Club International (SCI) was honored to host 25 purple heart recipients during its annual Wounded Veterans Fishing Weekend at Lake Lanier July 9-11. The event, which has been hosted for more than a decade by Georgia SCI, provides a full weekend of fishing and fun on Lake Lanier for wounded veterans and their guests. During the three-day event, veterans, including their family members or guests, were treated to an all-expenses-paid weekend of meals, accommodations, and fishing. Throughout the years, the Georgia Chapter of SCI has touched nearly 1,000 active-duty military and veterans through its humanitarian efforts and events geared towards getting our service members outdoors.
