SCI Foundation & Boy Scouts of America Hold 2nd Annual Sporting Clays Shoot

News from Safari Club International:

Tucson, AZ – To help kick off the 42nd Annual Safari Club International Hunter’s Convention, the 2nd Annual Sporting Clays Shoot was held to benefit the SCI Foundation and the Boy Scouts of America. The event took place on February 4, 2014 at the Clark County Shooting Complex in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

The 2nd Annual Shoot raised more than $40,000 for the SCI Foundation and Boy Scouts of America. Funds raised will help both organizations provide youth more opportunities to be involved in shooting sports.

 

“We split the money 50/50,” said SCI Foundation President Joe Hosmer. “We each take funds back to our regional projects, where the money will make a difference locally. In particular, we support the new programs that target men and women, 13-20 years old.”

 

A total of 84 shooters participated in the 2014 event. They enjoyed a morning of shooting followed by a lunch and awards ceremony.

 

Event sponsors included Krieghoff International and J. Alain Smith, Advocate Sponsor. Winning teams and top individual male and female shooters were honored with plaques.
