LOS ANGELES, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- More than 40 Hollywood celebrities and champions are joining forces with host Patrick Kilpatrick of Uncommon Dialogue Films to benefit the City of Hope Marrow Donor Program at the 2010 Hollywood Shotgun Sporting Clays Invitational.
Triple B Shotgun Sporting Park is the backdrop for this star-studded competition on Saturday, October 9 in El Monte, California.
More than 200 international shooters and 40 global celebrities will enjoy an exciting day of world class, eco-friendly sporting clays shooting to benefit the City of Hope Bone Marrow Donor Program. The City of Hope Mobile Bone Marrow Testing Unit will be on-site for celebrity and event participants to be entered into the national registry with the ultimate goal of finding a match for a patient in need of bone marrow or stem-cell treatment.
“It’s absolutely fun and challenging, a sport that anyone can enjoy,” said host and Uncommon Dialogue Films CEO actor Patrick Kilpatrick. “We’re doing something special … a vivid tournament, superbly catered, combined with Hollywood gifting and unique tactical attractions.”
Of all the shooting sports, sporting clays is the most contemporary. Four-person teams coupled with two celebrities per team will compete against each another in the day-long extravaganza to achieve the highest point total. Attendees will rotate from station-to-station to shoot bio-degradable, clay saucers launched at varying speeds, angles, heights and directions.
Safety is paramount at the 2010 Invitational. Responsible firearm handling is the order of the day as international competitors, instructors and long-time shooting actors, producers and directors will counsel and supervise those celebrities who are new to the sport.
Sideline activities include Kriss TDI Sub-Machine Gun demos, explosives demos by Trip Wire, an acoustic lunch-time performance from rock band Oh Darling, a Busettii Bike demo, a demo by Griffin Personal Defense Tool, US Army interactive games, fly-casting demos, color guard, bag piper, a Star Spangled Banner choir with Louise Mandrell in attendance and specialty shotgun games.
Following the red carpet and a gourmet breakfast, celebrities will receive mandatory safety and shooting instruction with a state-of-the-art loaner shotgun for the day. Participants walk the course or travel by golf-car from station-to station with some stops sporting extra activities and special treats for added fun and adventure.
Competitors will shoot a total of 100 clays split into two parts with a break for a gourmet picnic lunch. At the end of the event everyone will gather for a casual cocktail party, awards ceremony and eclectic live auction.
Honors include top, runner up and third place male and female shooter, top, runner up and third place male and female celebrity shooter as well as gift bags for everyone.
International shooters include Olympian, world and national champions as well as all-around recreational shooters who purchase $500 single-entry tickets, $1,800 for a team of four plus (with VIP treatment), or $150 for the cocktail party to join celebrities to benefit the charity event.
