Shootin' For A Cure

Saturday, August 27th marks the 3rd Annual Shootin' For A Cure event that benefits the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

This great group of folks started this event back in 2009 to help one walker in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For A Cure and to help with medical expenses for one of their dearest friends who found out earlier in the year that she had stage three breast cancer. They not only raised enough money to cover their friend's medical expenses, they also raised enough money to send two walkers to the 3-Day that year. Each year, they surpass their goals. Let's keep that momentum going this year.

Registration starts at 11:00 at the Gray Ranch in Cresson, Texas (Click this link for address). Shooting starts at 11:30.

They will have five gun stations and one bow/arrow station. The gun stations are set up with "Annie Oakley" style shooting. Six shooters line up and shoot against each other trying to knock one another out based upon the hits on the clay target.

There are shooting round gifts for the winners of each round. Six guys shoot against each other, six "qualifier" rounds. The winners of each of those six rounds come back to shoot against each other. The winner of that round will win a shooting round gift.

The $50 entry fee includes shooting, dinner/drinks, and one raffle ticket.

$15 fee for non-shooters gets you dinner and drinks.

Raffle tickets are $1 a piece. There's lots of nice auction/raffle items including a 12-gauge shotgun, Dallas Cowboys tickets, Dallas Stars tickets, Dallas Mavericks tickets, restaurant gift cards, jewelry, handmade custom furniture, quilts, gym memberships...lots and lots of great things.

I learned via Shootin' For A Cure's Facebook page if you show up to the event wearing pink, you get a free raffle ticket. So come on, Guys, sport your pink because we all know:

Y'all come out and show your support for this great cause. Stay and watch the bands play - Foggy Posse plays @ 1:00, Rocky Lott Band @ 3:00, and my personal favorite The Highway 80 West Band plays @ 6:30 (I have to say that because my brother is their mandolin player - ha - they really are great though!)
