On Saturday, August 17th, The Arc of the Ozarks 11th Annual Sporting Clays Shoot took over Ozarks Shooters Sports Complex. The 95-degree heat didn’t keep the 120 shooters from having fun and supporting a good cause.
The shoot is held to raise funding for The Arc’s ISL (Individualized Supported Living) Start-up fund. Specifically, this fund aids with items that include deposits on new apartments, furniture and various moving expenses. Nearly $11,000 was raised for the ISL Start-Up Fund.
“The ISL Start-Up fund is essential for our clients moving into their own homes to get a fresh start,” stated Mike Powers, President/CEO. “We are so appreciative of the support for this event and look forward to bringing new sponsors in each year.”
This year, a delicious lunch of tri-tip, beans and chips was served to all participants sponsored by Henry’s Towing. While the Ozark Shooters staff tallied up the scores, door prizes including Bass Pro gift cards, hunting essentials and insulated cups were given away.
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners from each flight won prizes of Bass Pro gift cards and bragging rights.
This event could not be possible without the many sponsors that aided in making it successful including our presenting sponsor, Commerce Trust. Our supporting sponsors included Central Bank of the Ozarks and (CSI) Central States Industrial. CSI brought 37 shooters to the event and have been instrumental in the growth of the event over the years.
Mark your calendars for next years event taking place Saturday, August 15, 2020. Contact The Arc at 417-864-7887 for more information on the ISL Start-Up Fund and other services provided.
