So far we have got prizes from Mathew, Scott's Strings, Trophy Blend Scents, Shell Rapid Lube, and possibly Victory Arrows. Come out and shoot or sponsor a target for $50, you can even just send us a check for $10 every little bit helps.. There is no donation too small.

great idea,

just to let you know, there was a similar shoot up here,
http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=799805
take a look and see if there are any ideas you might want to do.
I attended and they raised $6000 from about 113 shooters and 11 sponsers...the sponsers (local businesses and archery suppliers)donated 10 cents for every X shot by the archers, archers paid an entry fee and all had chances to win many door prizes donated by the sponsers and individuals, also as a final prizes PINK arrows were awarded to the winners. It was a very upbeat event and a lot of talent showed up, very different than shooting a tournament for score or rank...

good luck with your shoot, it's a great cause

Susan G. Komen

My brother-in-law's mother-in-law is a breatst cancer survivor. My brother-in-law (Eric) always puts together a team for Komen San Antonio Race for the Cure®. He has really put a lot of effort and self sacrifice into raising money for the cure in his mother-in-laws name. I am not asking for donations here lol just wanted other folks in and around central Texas to know about this great organization...Thanks

So far we have had donations from Mathews, Hoyt, Bob Timderlake, Shell, and Vera Bradley items for the auction and prizes.

The NC Wildlife Association has loan us some bows for people that have never shot before, so that they can try it out.
