FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 30th, 2013
Washington, DC – Safari Club International Foundation and the Boy Scouts of America Foundation (BSAF) will host their second annual sporting clays shoot on February 4, 2014 at 9:00 am. This event precedes the kickoff of the 2014 Safari Club International Convention in Las Vegas, Nev. and all proceeds from the shoot benefit the programs of both SCI Foundation and BSAF.
“I am extremely thankful to be working again with the Boy Scouts for our 2014 Sporting Clays Fundraiser,” said SCI Foundation President Joe Hosmer. “Krieghoff International’s generous donation of a world-class K-80 Pro Sporter makes it that much more special for our second year. If you are a supporter of SCI Foundation’s mission of wildlife conservation or the Boy Scout’s mission of developing future leaders, then we know you’ll be with us on February 4th.”
A variety of celebrity sporting clays experts will be in attendance. Participants will even have a chance to take pointers from Olympic bronze medalist Corey Cogdell.
“Both SCI Foundation and the Boy Scouts know that the future of hunting and shooting depends on developing the next generation of participants and at Krieghoff we have always had a passion of bringing more shooters into the field,” said Alex Diehl, Chief Operating Officer of Krieghoff. “When we were approached to sponsor the 2014 Sporting Clays fundraiser, not only did we want to field a team, we donated a top-tier sporting clays shotgun.”
As the lead sponsor for the 2014 shoot, Krieghoff International has donated a new Krieghoff K-80 Pro Sporter over/under, 12 gauge shotgun with 32-inch barrels. A sweepstakes drawing for the gun will be one of the highlights of the Second Annual SCI Foundation & BSAF Sporting Clays Fundraiser. Every shooter who registers for the competition will receive one ticket to the drawing, with additional tickets available for $100 apiece. A maximum of 300 tickets will be sold, so register soon to secure your team for February 4th.
The Boy Scouts serve nearly three million youth annually through their leadership driven programs and award more than 200,000 shooting sports achievements yearly. SCI Foundation promotes wildlife conservation and education worldwide and has donated well over $50 million in support of its vital projects and programs since 2000.
