"I can't believe it took us so long to honor both of you and the entire Cianciarulo family," Eichler said. "You're the real deal. You represent the hunting industry with class and dedication, always giving back, and always with an eye on the future and protecting our hunting heritage. It's our honor to recognize them with this award."
Ralph said hunting and archery are their lives, and they have been blessed in so many ways. "We're honored to be recognized by Muzzy, a company that also gives back to this entire industry in so many ways," he said. "This means so much to our family. We can't say thank you enough to Michele and everyone from Muzzy."
Ralph also thanked his family for their support, especially his mother, Arlene Cianciarulo, who helps keep the family and business running.
"As long as I can remember, my parents have encouraged me to do the best I can no matter what I did in life," Ralph says. "The best way for any of us to compliment our parents is to always remember actions reflect leadership. Thanks Mom and Dad."
