Welcome Celebrity Hunt Participants

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.

Welcome Celebrity Hunt Participants

Dear Celebrity Hunt Participants,

We’re gearing up for a great weekend March 11, 12 and 13 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 Hunt Club!

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 live in Iowa, bring your valid 2016 Iowa hunting license.  If you live outside Iowa, please contact Ryan Gianinni for your non-resident preserve license. His number is 319-648-5065.  His email is: [email protected]
