The Remington Gun Club hosted the inaugural Shoot to Cure charitable fundraiser on Friday, September 23, in Lonoke, Ark. The sporting clays shoot raised a five-figure amount in support of the Arkansas Children’s Foundation.
Featuring Remington’s new Gun Club Cure ammunition, the event was a huge success, bringing together community leaders, local companies and top-tier shooters. Funds raised were contributed to the Arkansas Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit supporting children’s hospitals and disease research. Each shooter played a large role in helping families and children in need.
“We’re thrilled at the outcome of our first Shoot to Cure,” said Remington’s Director of Marketing Joel Hodgdon. “Thanks to all our attendees and sponsors, the sporting clays fundraiser gave us all a chance to give back to our community—and break a few clays along the way.”
The Arkansas Children’s Foundation is the only healthcare system in the state solely dedicated to caring for the state’s more than 700,000 youth. It is part of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a group established in 1983 with a network that has grown to include 170 across North America. Each year, the facilities treat roughly 17 million children. The Arkansas site runs four clinics in different regions of the state and two hospitals. Together, they treat more than 376,000 patients annually.
A portion of each Remington’s Gun Club Cure ammunition sale is donated to benefit children’s hospitals and disease research. It became available in the summer, features a unique hull for enthusiasts can show their support for a great cause and is proudly loaded in America with Remington components.
The success of September’s event was made possible by sponsors including Remington, Bushnell, Nighthawk Custom, Silencer Central, Midway USA Foundation, Staley Electric, Confetti’s, United Health and Smart Choice Delivery, among others.
