From the Wild Sheep Society of BC:
We are excited to share with you our #danistrong – Platinum Sheep Hunter Raffle. This past winter WSSBC Monarch Member Denis and his wife Tressa tragically lost their daughter, WSSBC Life Member Danielle Cabana. Danielle was an avid young outdoorswoman and Denis’s little hunting partner. True to our wild sheep family, one of our members spearheaded a campaign to recognize Danielle’s legacy through this incredible raffle offering. The proceeds from this raffle package will go toward the Wild Sheep Society of BC’s projects and initiatives, however, we will honour Danielle ensuring her legacy by awarding her Monarch Membership status. If we are able to raise over $25,000 through this raffle, Danielle’s legacy will continue with the Society having her recognized as a Platinum Monarch. Please note that the proceeds will not be directed to the Cabana family, they will support our conservation initiatives right here in BC. This package contains every piece of kit every sheep hunter wished they owned. https://darelle.com/raffles/bs1rc4/
