Trap Shoot fundraiser back by popular demand
Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics Foundation hosted its 2nd annual "Aim for a Cause" Trap Shoot Fundraiser on Saturday, September 22, at the Boscobel Area Sportsmen’s Club. Proceeds from the event supported areas of greatest need based on the priorities of the community and Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics, such as patient care, care coordination, technology and education.
"Aim for a Cause offers a family-friendly day of outdoor fun with the opportunity to support a good cause and have fun," explained Natalie Tollefson, Director, Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics Foundation. "Whether seasoned trap shooters or looking to shoot for the first time, all were welcome and invited to participate in this fun event."
The fundraiser was 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with shooting ending at 2:30 p.m. with an Annie Oakley competition followed by raffle drawings. Learn to Shoot lessons were available throughout the day for $10, and several 10-Bird Shoot competitions took place for $3.50. New this year was a 50-Bird Shoot for $20. Top prize was $200, with two $50 Lucky Number prizes.
"The event allowed participants to sign-up to compete against those with similar skill levels," explained Tollefson. "Shooters were welcome to compete more than once in all events."
There was no pre-registration. Attendees were asked to bring their own gun, ammunition (target loads only), safety glasses and hearing protection. Loaner items were also available at the event for those who wanted to participate, but did not have the necessary equipment. Ammunition was also available for purchase throughout the event.
There were a variety of raffles at the event, along with concessions. For more information, contact Natalie at (608) 375-6300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
