“All that Tom Mower Sr. and his family have done on behalf of Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife has helped to lay the foundation for the rebirth of the American Spirit and Conservative values embraced by SFW." -Don Peay, Founder of SFW
Salt Lake City (PRWEB) April 8, 2010
Thomas Mower Sr., Chairman of SISEL International, and Karl Malone, former NBA Star of the Utah Jazz, have been key players in the growth and success of Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife (SFW), according to Founder Don Peay. At the 4th Annual Western Hunting & Conservation Expo (WHCE), Peay paid tribute to Mower and Malone, both avid sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts, for their dedication and generous contributions to SFW. Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife (SFW), is a non-profit wildlife conservation organization of sportsmen members committed to preserving and increasing healthy populations of wildlife throughout the Western United States.
“All that Tom Mower Sr. and his family have done on behalf of Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife has helped to lay the foundation for the rebirth of the American Spirit and Conservative values embraced by SFW. Tom will never truly know the magnitude of what his initial donation of $1 million dollars did to help launch SFW. People will never truly know all that Karl has done for SFW, and of the impact that the $1 million dollars he has donated has had on wildlife conservation efforts in Utah. With the help of these great Americans, Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife has been able to make great strides in improving wildlife, habitat and hunting opportunities,” said Peay.
Mower was also recognized for his donation of $100,000 toward the Full Curl Society, in support of Wild Sheep conservation. “By uniting together as sportsmen, we can strengthen our efforts to protect and enhance wildlife habitat restoration,” said Mower. “As we continue to support SFW, our common pursuit in promoting the quality of wildlife management programs will have great impact on preserving the heritage of hunting and fishing for future generations, as well as preserving the beauty of nature for all to enjoy.”
The Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife organization, now 15,000 members strong, was founded by Peay in 1994. "SFW is the kind of thing I wanted to lend my name and resources to when it first started, and everything has grown since then," Malone said. "SFW is getting things done for wildlife and hunters that others can only dream of."
Mower was featured as the keynote speaker at the Ladies Black and White Brunch at the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo. Mower donated $85,000 in behalf of this event, which included a cash contribution, lavish gift baskets with SISEL nutritional and skin-care products for door prizes, along with gifts for each of the luncheon guests. All attendees received a gift box containing an assortment of deluxe SISEL personal care products, valued at nearly $400 per set.
In partnership with SISEL, Mower has established the Earth Stewardship Foundation, a nonprofit charity dedicated to supporting a variety of causes, including supporting improvements for wildlife and their habitat, providing safe havens for endangered wildlife, and protecting fragile environments in nature. In addition, the Earth Stewardship Foundation also provides assistance to programs devoted to improving the quality of childcare for vulnerable children in orphanages throughout the world. Mower was recently honored by Whole Child International, along with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, at events held in Los Angeles in February. Mower received the first ever Whole Child International’s Champion Award for his generous contributions which have been central to the growth of Whole Child International.
