MidwayUSA Renews Safari Club International Sponsorship
TUCSON, AZ--MidwayUSA—one of the largest privately held retailers of hunting, shooting and outdoor products, with a focus on customer service and satisfaction—has renewed its corporate sponsorship with Safari Club International (SCI). “Brenda and I are passionate hunters and strong advocates for wildlife conservation,” said Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA. “As sportsmen, it’s our responsibility to fight for and support those organizations that we closely align with; that’s why all of us here at MidwayUSA are proud to partner with SCI, an organization dedicated to protecting the freedom to hunt and promoting wildlife conservation worldwide.”
“We are pleased to be partnered with such stalwart allies in the fight to protect and defend our hunting heritage,” said Phil DeLone, CEO of SCI. “Larry Potterfield and the entire MidwayUSA operation dovetail perfectly with the global mission of SCI.”
MidwayUSA’s commitment to conservation, hunter’s rights and firearm ownership continues to set a standard for the outdoor industry. In October, Larry and Brenda Potterfield donated $184,045 to the MidwayUSA Foundation—as part of their matching program to benefit youth shooting sports. The couple also received the John L. Morris award in recognition of their exemplary leadership in conservation and lifetime commitment to fish and wildlife stewardship from the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies in September.
