Sporting Clays Tournament Provides Vital Funding for ScoutReach Program
Padgett Stratemann Aim High & Let'Em Fly Charity Sporting Clays Shoot happens May 10th to Benefit Kids for the Alamo Area Council Boy Scouts of America
Padgett Stratemann will serve as lead sponsor for the seventh year in a row and will offer financial support, as well as donate staffing and resources to the event.
The ScoutReach program is a scouting program that serves over 4,000 at-risk youth.
Utilizing ScoutReach funding, the Alamo Area Council targets South San Antonio children from economically challenged, and often single-parent, homes.
The funds raised this year will help cover costs associated with sending kids to camps, as well as salaries for employees who serve in the absence of volunteer leaders.
"Our communities can find a partner in Scouting to provide hope and a positive influence for our kids. Scouting provides a safe, time tested values based environment that gets them outdoors, and this tournament supports that," says Michael de los Santos, Scout Executive for the Alamo Area Council, BSA
"Sporting Clays simulates the sport of real shotgun hunting in the woods looking for a quail or rabbit. I love it," says Stephanie Woods, Co-chair of the event and Director of Training for Padgett Stratemann University.
The tournament will be held on May 10 at the National Shooting Complex on 5931 Roft Road.
The tournament officially starts at 2 p.m. Leading the evening's entertainment is the Blue Buck.
A banquet and live/silent auction events will run from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., which will be followed by the awards ceremony for the top teams at the sporting clays tourney. For more information on the event, contact Courtney Bukowski at 210-296-7623 via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
