Sport shooters can help fight diabetes
Placeholder Image

Just as the hunting season ends, the sporting clay "season" kicks off with the 4th Annual Friends for Diabetes Sporting Clays Tournament fundraiser.

All sport shooters in the area are encouraged to form a team to support the American Diabetes Association’s 2007 Kiss-A-Pig Campaign.

Test your skill and enjoy the fun on Saturday, April 14, at the scenic Dorchester Shooting Preserve near Midway, Georgia.

Last year’s event raised over $40,000, more than any other single event held in Southeast Georgia to support the "Kiss-A-Pig" campaign.

The top five shooters receive trophies, with all awards based on Lewis Class scoring.

Organizers Claude Dryden, John Meeks, Toby Roberts, Al Padrick and Don Padrick join hosts Charles and Chuck Gaskin for this 50-target fun shoot.

Separated into a morning and an afternoon shoot, followed by a high score shoot-out, participants enjoy an action-packed day of camaraderie.

Sponsorships ($500 Silver, $1,000 Gold, and $2,500 Platinum) show your individual or company support for winning the fight against diabetes while adding substantially to the fundraising goal.

Registration forms can be picked up at Dryden Enterprises, Inc., Roberts Truck Center, Tidal Construction Company, or Sanitary Plumbing in Richmond Hill, Georgia.

If you would like a form faxed to you, contact Dianne at (912) 369-7634 or Beverly at (912) 756-3503. Join the fun and help cure diabetes.

Diabetes is the nation’s fifth deadliest disease, killing more than 220,000 Americans each year, and is the leading cause of heart disease and stroke, adult blindness, kidney failure and lower limb amputations.

More than 14 million Americans have been diagnosed with diabetes, and researchers believe over six million more may have diabetes and not realize it.

The Dorchester Shooting Preserve’s 4,000 acres of private hunting grounds in Liberty County are part of Georgia’s beautiful lowcountry, located about 25 minutes south of Savannah just off Interstate 95.

Non-shooting companions can enjoy a tour of many historic sites in and around Midway and Liberty County.
