Hunters Welcome 2019

The Aiming For A Cure Foundation is built upon a foundation of committed people with a great passion to help children and their families that suffer from various forms of cancer.

Hunters Welcome 2019

Welcome to Our 2019 Charity Event!

We’re gearing up for a great weekend March 15, 16 and 17 for Aiming for a Cure.  Yes, you are adventure bound!  Set your compasses for Riverside, Iowa (just 20 minutes south of Iowa City!) There you’ll be enjoying some great Iowa weather and hunting at Highland Hideaway Hunting!

We have a full weekend planned…but at our center is the Aiming For A Cure Foundation and the work it does to help children and families who are receiving treatment for cancer. We look forward to sharing our story, our updates and introduce you to patients and families.

This would be a good time to make sure you have your rooms at the Marriott or elsewhere, extra banquet tickets needed with meals choices indicated. If you have not already done this, you can still make these plans on our website.

If you are an Iowa resident please bring your valid 2019 Iowa hunting license.  If you are a non-resident to Iowa please go online to purchase your 2019 Iowa Hunting Preserve License and Habitat Fee.  We prefer you purchase online prior to your arrival to avoid delays. If you have any questions please feel to contact Ryan Gianinni from Highland Hunting for assistance.  He can be reached at 319-648-5065 or [email protected].

With the changing of seasons we need to minimize the parking at Highland Hunting at this year’s event.  Like in the years past we will have 2 shuttles running back and forth from the Highland High School and Highland Hunting.  We are asking all of those that can please consolidate your groups along with all firearms into as few of vehicles as possible to help us minimize this traffic at Highland Hunting.  All volunteers and those who do not have any firearms please park at the Highland High School located just 1 mile south of Highland Hunting on Vine Ave.  There will be a non-stop shuttle going back and forth so if there is something forgotten or missed we will be able to get you to your vehicle.  We apologize for any inconveniences this may create, however we truly appreciate all your efforts to help us keep this a safe and enjoyable event for all!
