COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (September 11, 2018)
Following a successful North Carolina Fundraiser, USA Shooting is now turning its attention to The Golden State for another key donor event needed to achieve the organization’s 2020 Vision.
More than 35 sponsors, donors and industry partners stepped forward in a big way to help America’s Shooting Team during USA Shooting’s Fundraiser on August 30 at Fork Farm and Childress Vineyards. It was a fitting end to National Shooting Sports Month and a true showcase of the strength and support that can be realized when the shooting industry bands together for an important cause.
Now, USA Shooting is asking for supporters to step up once again in a state that helps produce some of the top Olympic shooting team members and hopefuls. Ten athletes representing Team USA at the 2018 International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Championship call California home including six-time Olympic medalist Kim Rhode (El Monte), and trap world-record holder Jake Wallace (Castaic). Both these athletes along with two-time Olympic gold medalist Vincent Hancock (Eatonton, Georgia) and three-time Olympic rapid-fire pistol shooter Keith Sanderson (Colorado Springs, Colorado) will be present during the event at Oak Tree Gun Club.
One of the most successful junior pistol clubs in the country resides in California with the Bridge Jr. Shooting Club consistently placing athletes on junior teams behind the coaching of In Kim. Los Angeles Rifle and Revolver has been a top USA Shooting club as well having helped produce Olympians like USA Shooting Hall-of-Famer David Kimes, a 1980 Olympian and two-time World Champion and most recently 2016 David Higgins.
The event will feature a meet and greet athlete reception set for Friday, October 12. The main event will be an all-day
