24-7 Travel Stores is excited to partner with Pheasants Forever for the fourth year in a row to raise funds across its 10 locations to support Pheasants Forever’s Kansas programs and wildlife conservation efforts in our state.
Donations are being accepted at the register at all 24-7 Travel Store locations, where you can also enter our giveaway to win 1 of 10 Yeti coolers and a chance to win a 2 person 2 day hunt at The Kansas Governor’s Ringneck Classic which includes 2 nights lodging and meals. The campaign runs throughout the month of November, with a fundraising goal of $30,000
Pheasants Forever is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of pheasants, quail and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, education and land management policies and programs. It’s Pheasants Forever’s vision that current and future generations of hunters and conservationists are able to enjoy abundant populations of wild pheasants, quail, and other wildlife. “Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever deeply value the partnership we have developed with 24/7 Travel Stores” says Jordan Martincich, director of development for PF/QF. “We thank the entire 24/7 Travel Stores team again for their willingness to raise funds for our upland wildlife habitat conservation mission. This is fourth year for this in-store fundraiser, and we hope that 24/7 Travel Store customers will be inspired to give to our Kansas conservation and youth outreach efforts.”
Every year thousands of hunters travel to Kansas for pheasant hunting season and they often stop for fuel and food at 24/7 locations along the I-70 and I-135 corridors. “24/7 Travel Stores is excited to partner with Pheasants Forever again this year to raise money for Kansas upland habitat and hunting heritage programs,” says Ted Augustine, manager of growth & development for 24/7 Travel Stores. “Upland season is an important part of our state’s economy and we want to be inviting to those traveling here to participate. I also have personal ties to upland hunting, my wife and I have a one-year- old son, another on the way, and a two year old Brittany named Blue. Conservation efforts are critical for ensuring there are enough birds for Blue to chase … and to capture the attention of the next generation of hunters, including my kids.”
