HUNTERS RAISE $30,000
East Colorado Springs Rotary Club helps raise $30,000
The 9th Annual Service Club Shootout, an upland bird hunt for charity, was held Saturday, February 5, 2011 at Rocky Mountain Roosters, a private hunting preserve north of Calhan.
The Service Club Shootout is an upland bird hunt for charity. Through sponsorships, donations and hunting fees from the 147 area sportsmen, the Service Club Shootout raised $30,000 for Junior Achievement of Southern Colorado, Alpine Autism Center and Life Quest Transitions, a wounded warrior empowerment program. This annual fundraising effort is a project of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation in partnership with East Colorado Springs Rotary Club and Rocky Mountain Sertoma Club and has contributed over $250,000 to local community projects in the past 9 years.
Special Thanks to my guides, their dogs & hunting partners:
