100 Citizens Meet in Texas Again to Raise More than $1 Million for the Special Forces Charitable Trust and other Military Non-Profits
Rosharon, TX -(AmmoLand.com)- The Remington Great Americans Shoot (RGAS15) “The Most Money Ever Raised with Guns,” returns to Rosharon, TX September 26th benefitting the Special Forces Charitable Trust and other military non profits.
It’s not about guns or even about the shooting competition: it’s about real people raising money, all of which goes directly to organizations that directly serve our nation’s Special Ops community.
RGAS14 broke all known charitable shoot records, netting $1.2 million, a milestone organizers aim to shatter this year. RGAS15 is hosted by the Special Forces Charitable Trust (SFCT), which provides meaningful and sustainable support for the Special Operations Community and their Families.
The founder and Chair of the Remington Great Americans Shoot is Texan entrepreneur and philanthropist Mike Reynolds.
“The original idea was to find a way to allow normal citizens the opportunity to sit with some of these truly amazing men and women and say more than just a thank you. It’s a chance for us to put our arms around someone who has been to battle for this country, whose family has given so much, and say how much we appreciate the security you bring to my family’s life.”
The Remington Great Americans Shoot is a one-of-a-kind format. Twenty teams of five shooters choose a military charity and raise a minimum of $50,000. Half of the proceeds go to the Special Forces Charitable Trust; the remainder is split among designated charities of the top five fundraising teams. Other designated military non profits include The Marine Corps Association Foundation and Lone Star Veterans Association. Another team is shooting on behalf of the Special Forces Charitable Trust.
Returning for RGAS 15 are 84 year old Laura Berry of “Lady Laura and the Hot Smokin’ BB’s,” Ron McCan of “Disk Dusters” and Sara Walker of “The Quiet Professionals.” Lending his support again is Mark Owen, former Navy SEAL and bestselling author of “No Easy Day” and his latest book, “No Hero.”
Each team also includes a “6th Man” from within the Special Operations Community, who joins the shooting competition as an honorary team member.
Top shooting teams compete for amazing prizes including: R-4 Remington Gas Piston Carbine, Remington XM2010 Sniper Rifle System, a Remington 1100 American Classic 12G and various other Remington firearms and products.
The Special Forces Charitable Trust and Remington invite you to donate and say “thanks.” After all, we are just “Great Americans doing Great Things for Great Americans!” Donors of $100 or more receive a special Challenge Coin from the Special Forces Charitable Trust.
