Washington, DC – (AmmoLand.com) Olympic medalist Corey Cogdell and world-renowned shooting instructor Chris Batha will be among the celebrity guests of the Second Annual SCI Foundation & Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Sporting Clays Fundraiser.

The Sporting Clays fundraiser will be held Feb. 4, 2014, the day preceding the 2014 SCI Hunters’ Convention in Las Vegas, Nev.  All proceeds from the shoot benefit the youth education programs of both SCI Foundation and BSA.

“I’m a hunter, and I have experienced first-hand the positive impact that SCI Foundation’s outreach programs have for getting more young adults into our sport,” said Olympic medalist Corey Cogdell. “And additional thanks go to Krieghoff International, who is a committed corporate partner dedicated to seeing our outdoor heritage passed on to the next generation.

“The Boy Scouts and sporting clays are both traditions that were started in the U.K.,” said Chris Batha. “It only seems fitting that even in modern times these skill development activities unite to raise awareness and funds for our traditional outdoor and sporting pursuits.”

“Our goal at SCI Foundation is deliver high quality results for youth education and outreach on hunting and sustainable-use. It would not be possible with the amazing support of Krieghoff, Corey, and Chris who are true ambassadors for all hunters worldwide. Please join us for the Second Annual SCI Foundation and BSA Sporting Clays Fundraiser on Feb. 4, 2014,” concluded SCI Foundation President Joe Hosmer.
