“Shoot for the Soldiers” Sporting Clay Event Scheduled
NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will serve as one of the sponsors for “Shoot for the Soldiers,” a sporting clay target shoot scheduled for Aug. 24 at the Nashville Gun Club.
The event will raise funds with all the proceeds going to Tennessee soldiers and their families. A portion will go toward scholarships for soldiers’ children with the remainder going to providing outdoors recreational opportunities for Wounded Warriors and their families.
“Shoot for the Soldiers” will use a five-person format team format. Teams can be made up of male, female, youth, pro-class shooters or a combination. A sporting clay professional will handle the scoring. Ammunition will be provided.
Cost for the event is divided into different levels. A $5,000 Platinum Sponsorship pays for a 5-person team, a company logo on all event printed materials, and a sign at a shooting station. A $1,200 Gold Sponsorship is the cost for a corporate team or will provide entry for a Wounded Warrior team.
A Bronze Sponsorship is $300 and provides signage at a shooting station. The cost for an individual shooter is $250.
