Fourth Annual Shooting Hunger Event Raises Over $62,000 at Carroll County Shooting Sports Complex
20 Jul, 2020
Guns were blazing, clay targets were flying, and lots of money was being raised to fight hunger in Tennessee during Friday’s Shooting Hunger event at the Carroll County Shooting Sports Complex in Huntingdon.
According to event director Bryant Wright, over $62,000 was raised during the event – enough to provide over 250,000 meals for Tennessee residents through regional food banks.
Wright pointed out that this year the need is even greater as the pandemic and destruction caused by tornadoes has left many families and individuals struggling financially.
So far this year, Shooting for Hunger events throughout the state have raised enough to provide 1.5 million meals for hungry Tennesseans.
Around 265 shooters, young and old and in-between, participated in the event, with most coming from West Tennessee but some also from Middle and East Tennessee.
Overall attendance topped 400 for the event, which featured two flights of sporting clays competition with awards given to the top scoring five-person teams and individual shooters.
