Big Green cares in a Big Way, and the latest proof is the clay-smashing success of Remington Ammunition's Second Annual Shoot to Cure fundraiser. Taking place this past September 22 at the Remington Gun Club back at Lonoke, Arkansas, the event drew hundreds and raised $15,000 for the Arkansas Children's Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing children's hospitals and disease research.
Each Shoot to Cure fundraiser plays a pivotal role in making a difference in the lives of families and children in Arkansas and beyond. With additional support from such industry sponsors as Nighthawk Custom, Starline Brass, Benelli, Hornady, Fort Thompson Sporting Goods and Rob Roberts Custom Gun Works, the event's success was secured.
But breaking clays to beat childhood cancer and disease doesn't stop with the Shoot to Cure event--you can support this cause from home with Remington's Gun Club Cure shotshells, too.
Gun Club shotshells are target loads designed specifically for clay games and practice on the range. Using traditional lead pellets, carefully chosen primer/propellants, the Remington Power Piston Wad and Remington's top-quality unibody hull, Gun Club shells are designed for budget-conscious shooters. With the powder-blue Gun Club Cure line, you're taking aim at childhood diseases every time you shatter a clay pigeon.
In addition to Remington Gun Club shotshells, you can also enjoy the actual, physical Remington Gun Club, a premier shooting facility that is open to visitors and features facilities for trap, skeet and an all-new sporting clays course and five-stand. Whether it's a family outing, corporate event or a sanctioned competition, Remington Gun Club allows visitors to put the world's finest shotshells to the ultimate test.
“We were thrilled to bring back our Shoot to Cure fundraiser,” said Remington’s Director of Marketing Joel Hodgdon. “Big Green is deeply committed to giving back to our local community and nationwide. Thanks to the support of our attendees and sponsors, this sporting clays fundraiser helped those in need. Expect an even more impactful event next year.”
