3rd Annual Hunters for the Hungry / Shady Grove Sporting Clays event!

On Saturday August 1st the 3rd annual Hunters for the Hungry Sporting Clays event was held at Shady Grove Sporting Clays in Remington, VA. The weather was absolutely perfect and everyone that came out had a great day of food, fun, fellowship, and some friendly competition! Despite all the challenges and adjustments made we had a record 73 shooters and raised $7,100 in support of the Hunters for the Hungry feeding efforts! These dollars allowed the program to process and distribute 22,720 quarter pound servings of essential lean protein for food banks, missions, and churches in the local area and throughout Virginia!

We would like to thank Leslie Carter and her staff at Shady Grove for hosting the event again this year and all their efforts in having everything run so smoothly for a successful event! Thanks also to all the volunteers who made the event possible, event coordinator Glen Tharp, Tammy Tharp, Tim Hall, James Rowen, Colton Rowen, Logan Rowan, R. D. Shifflett, Jr., and Adrienne Gardner. Thank you also to all the sponsors and donors of the event who gave in support of the event and the feeding efforts of Hunters for the Hungry! Your, business, organization, and you are a special blessing to our program!

AND thanks to all those who took time out of their busy schedules to come out to participate in the activities! You play a special part in the event and in the success of our feeding efforts!
