Christian Rosenstock

Founder and President of Gunning For Hope

Gunning For Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises money for cancer research through shooting and hunting sports.  We blend the fun and camaraderie of shooting and hunting with the hope to find a cure for cancer. 

Our fundraiser, held annually, is a fun day of shooting games, networking, hunting, and a reception/banquet filled with auctions, raffles and prizes and food.  We set a goal for the fundraiser to be a memorable and fun experience for all who participate, and we hope you will be with us this year.

We understand that participants donate money and expect it will be used to the greatest advantage for our cause.  That is why we spend time each year researching our potential beneficiaries.  And while there are always multiple charities that are worthy of our fundraising, we have selected Carbone Cancer Center this year.  We are impressed by the great work they do, and our proceeds this year will go to their research fund, which guarantees that 100% of the donation will be used toward cancer research.  So, please come out and join us, have some fun, and help find a cure. 

Aiming at a cure for cancer!
