U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Mossy Oak Properties is making the final preparations to host the upcoming 3rd Annual Fox Hole Shootout taking place on Thursday, June 6, 2019 in West Point, Mississippi. The prior two events have led to the donation of over $280,000 to the event’s beneficiaries: St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Catch-A-Dream Foundation, and Sportsmen Organized for Law Enforcement (SOLE).

Sponsored by Bass Pro Shops, the golfing portion of the event takes place at the Mossy Oak Golf Club, the #3 Best New Course in the US for 2017, according to Golf Digest. The sporting clays portion of the event takes place at the Orvis-endorsed Prairie Wildlife and will be sponsored by Winchester Ammunition and Browning Firearms. At the end of the day, everyone gathers for the unique live-fire dinner and live/silent auctions, presented by Renasant Bank at Town Creek Pavilion. The dinner portion is prepared by some of the nation’s leading chefs and live entertainment will be provided by several Nashville-based musicians and hit songwriters.

“The Mossy Oak enterprise lives by the belief that the good we do lives long after we are gone,” said Chris Hawley, CEO/President and Co-founder of Mossy Oak Properties. “We could not be more pleased with how well our great sponsors like Bass Pro Shops, Winchester Ammunition, Browning Firearms, Renasant Bank, among many others and the event’s volunteers and participants have come together to make such a large impact to benefit three great charities the way that they have the last two years. I am humbled and overwhelmed, to say the least, to see so much good come out of so many people to help some incredible organizations.”

There are a very wide variety of live and silent auction items available at the event. The following are just a few of the incredibly generous items being donated by the sponsors of the event:

Mossy Oak Tree Box Call by Cody Turkey Calls

Mossy Oak Bourbon by Jefferson Reserve

This truly one of a kind bottle of premium bourbon is finished using wood from THE one and only Mossy Oak itself…the legendary tree of Choctaw Bluff, Alabama from which the brand was born. Staves of the Mossy Oak wood were toasted at a specific temperature for a precise amount of time to bring out certain flavors without covering the traditional big caramel, vanilla and orange notes of Jefferson’s Bourbon. The bottle is encased in a custom, handmade engraved wooden box built by Dr. Dennis Bond. Theses bottles will never be available on the retail market and this will be the first bottle ever sold. “We finished this 8 year old Kentucky gold with wood staves harvested from the Original Mossy Oak tree, lending flavors of leather and tobacco with a touch of mocha,” said Trey Zoeller, founder of Jefferson’s Bourbon

Ticket price for the general public is $100.00.  To reserve a ticket contact David Hawley at [email protected]

  • One thought on “3rd Annual Fox Hole Shootout Raises Funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and More

    1. The current CEO and the in-house legal counsel of ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital decided several years ago that ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital would NO longer accept any donated funds from a fund raising event that has to do with firearms and shooting. After accepting over $500,000 over a period of several years, ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital sent a cease and desist letter to the annual Ladies Charity Skeet Classic and also the Ladies Charity Sporting Clays Classic that the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital name and/or logo was not to be used to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital because it involved using firearms. ALSAC/ St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has notified several other annual shooting tournaments (Ronald McDonald House, etc.) that they would not accept funds from their shooting tournaments because the raised funds came from firearm shooting events. It is best to find out in advance in writing that a charity will allow you to be associated with them before you raise the money in their name and try to give it to them.
