The recent event held at Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio, was one of our most successful fundraisers yet. All the fun started at 9 a.m., with each participant enjoying a 100-bird round of sporting clays.
Teams of five were created to promote friendly competition among attendees. Corporate sponsors such as BNY Mellon Wealth Management, Law Office of Sean McCarter, Steelcase/Loth, Dick Wills Construction and many others vied for both bragging rights and coveted trophies donated by the Ohio Gun Collectors.
By lunchtime, famished shooters sat down to a mouthwatering spread courtesy of Anheuser-Busch and Buckeye BBQ. A silent auction for hunting trips and raffles were held afterwards. Prizes included firearms and a wide variety of hunting gear donated by Siberian Coolers, Eagle Claw, Wildlife Research Company, Hodgdon Powder Company, Otis Technology and Cardinal Shooting Center.
“Our participants really have a great time shooting and socializing, while at the same time knowing they’re supporting the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation youth programs,” said Jeff Watkins, Director of Field Services. “It is the dedication of the Trailblazer shoot committee that makes the annual fundraiser so successful. We have to thank the men and women who volunteer their time and energy, along with the event and team sponsors, that make this event so special.”
Special thanks to event sponsors Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Columbia Gas of Central Ohio, as well as the silent-auction sponsor Flyway Outdoors.
Their support and commitment to the Charity Shoot make the event undeniably successful and memorable.
