2011 Get Back Outdoors Charity Event
Benton, ME –-(Ammoland.com)- Blaine Anthony, Kevin Pruitt and Darrin Ellsmore, from the multi-award winning TV Show North American Safari, are to appear at a benefit for a wounded soldier in Okeechobee Florida from February 14th to 18th.
Other TV Shows and personalities are also slated to appear such as Away outdoors and After the Snap.
The wounded soldier (SGM Patrick T. Corcoran) was severely injured in Afghanistan when enemy forces using an improvised explosive device attacked the vehicle he was riding in. The explosion left SGM Corcoran critically injured requiring immediate medical evacuation. After recovering from the most life threatening injuries, he remains paralyzed from the waist down from severe spinal cord trauma with back, leg, and pelvic injuries.
“We are always looking for opportunities to give back when we can” said Darrin Ellsmore, owner of RGS labs. “Being able to give back to such a great cause and be able to give someone the ability to get back outdoors and hunt again that was injured fighting for my freedom, I don’t think there is a greater honor” says Darrin Ellsmore.
Many companies have stepped up to help make this event happen.
“Trans Canada has stepped up big time in support of the purchase of the Renegade Wheelchair, all decked out in camo with a ground blind, gun holder and all the other accessories. I am not sure the event could have even taken place without them” says Blaine Anthony from North American Safari.
The event will be filmed for national airing on The Sportsman Channel, which is slated to air sometime in May 2011.
