You can smell it in the air and hear it in the bird’s morning melodies, there is no denying spring is in full force. Here at Northern Mat & Bridge, we are busier than ever! Our grapples are grappling while access mats, crane mats and temporary bridges are being spread across the country. But as the old saying goes “busy hands are happy hands,” and despite the hustle and bustle of the season, we are ecstatic to be planning our Second Annual Charity Sporting Clay Tournament.
You are invited to join us on Thursday June 11th in attending this year’s SHOOT & SHUCK! This is a day packed full of friends and fun in an effort to blow up last year’s target and raise as much money as possible for our charities. After a day of shooting, we’ll all sit down and enjoy a steak, crab and shrimp dinner. Later, there will be a live auction with amazing prizes such as an autographed Bobby Orr Boston Bruins jersey and a trip for two on an “Ultimate Sports Fan Getaway!”
Thanks to the support of the community, last year’s tournament was a total success, raising over $78,000 for the United Way Alberta Northwest! Their borders extend north to the Northwest Territories, west to the BC border, south to Grande Cache and east to Fox Creek. The money they receive through generous donations – like those from our shoot – is used to help fund and support a number of agencies which focus on improving the quality of life for many in our community.
This year we have decided to spread the love and split the money up between two local organizations. With so many outstanding charities in Grande Prairie, it was difficult to choose; however, after much deliberation we’re going with United Way Northwest and Kev’s Kids.
Kev’s Kids is a local charity made up of a board of Rock 97.7 employees and community members. The charity was started when they noticed the lack of opportunities and resources for Grande Prairie youth who fall through the cracks. The tremendous response from the community has supported the real need that is out there for kids and families who need that additional hand up.
We are all very excited for our Shoot & Shuck and hope you are too! All levels welcome.
