All proceeds raised at the event will be used to meet the healthcare needs in Highlands and Hardee counties. Because of you, a life was saved!
With 107 shooters and 17 station sponsors the shoot was a huge success with a gross income of more than $35,000. The event was topped with wonderful weather and delicious fresh fruit donated by Clear Springs and Futch Farms. Our shooters thirst was quenched with assorted juices donated by Natalie's Orchid Island Juice and Everglades Farm Equipment satisfied the guest's sweet tooth with homemade ice cream.
