In a time when Operation Iraqi Freedom has ended and Operation Enduring Freedom is winding down the Judge Carl B. Bentley Memorial Salute Shoot Invitational will be held in support of our returning troops.
The proceeds of this sporting clays event will be put towards the building of houses through Homes for Our Troops in order to give returning veterans with disabilities a new start in life with their families.
This charity shooting event will take place February 1, with flight times at 9am and 1pm and with lunch served at 11am at Baroid on the Brazos 3525 Bowser Rd. Fulshear, Tx 77441 on proprietor Leigh John Bentley’s Brazos River Sportsmen’s Club.
Last year’s shoot provided funding for six houses for returning wounded veterans and sponsorships are available with the hope of increasing that number this year.
For those who would like to do more for the troops sponsorships are available from $25 up to $25,000 for those who would like to give more than the entry fee and are provided certain perks based off the sponsorship amount including company logos displayed publicly and name recognition.
There will be raffle prizes for all attendees with purchase of raffle tickets from $10 up to $75 and an auction open to the public awarding a variety of prizes.
This event is being organized by Whitney Masterson-Moyes of Moyesway Shooting Sports with additional equipment and labor provided by Jason Menke of Briley Manufacturing/Mattarelli USA.
“We brought back the Homes for Our Troops shoot in order to support a cause that is very near and dear to my heart, said Whitney Masterson-Moyes. My father is a Vietnam veteran, and my brother is an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran which gives this shoot a special meaning to me. I want to see our country’s veterans taken care of upon their arrival home in the best way that we can. This is my way of honoring our veterans as a supportive, patriotic American citizen.”
