    I need some advice. In October I am walking 3 days and 60 miles for breast cancer. I need/want to raise quite a bit of money. Have any of you been involved with or planned a trapshoot as a fundraiser? I would love some input.... thanks... Jill

    A small club I shoot at has an annual fund raiser for the local Hospital Hospice.
    With a little work and connections they get free targets and shells donated. They also go out an find contributions for silent auction items and buy a shotgun for the raffle. Local gun shop brings out a number of shotguns that can be used for new shooters, shooting instruction is offered for free, food and drink is available. If I remember correctly they raise 5 or 6 thousand dollars each year.
    This has been going on for about 8 years now.

    Do a 100 bird event. Recruit shooters to solicit sponsorships/bird or a flat dollar contribution. If a shooter were to be sponsored for $10/bird and they hit 86 birds... $860 for that shooter alone... get 2-3 squads of shooters and estimate $8-12K for those 200-300 birds.

    Get local business to donate items for the shooters participating, sell some food and a few hundred raffle tickets and I'd imagine that should get you on your way...

    regards to all,

    Jay
