Pull for charity
Three new programs will benefit from the 2014 Shannon Sporting Clay Shoot.After 14 very successful years, the Shannon Sporting Clay Shoot has grown into the largest charity shoot in Texas, attracting more than 700 shooters from around the state and country and more than 1,500 spectators and volunteers.
“The ongoing partnership with generous sponsors and shooters has allowed the continued growth and success of the shoot,” says Connie Whitman, Shannon Sporting Clay Shoot co-chairwoman.
Along with the Oncology Angel Fund, AirMed1 regional outreach and the outpatient dialysis programs, three new programs will benefit from the 2014 shoot:
- Diabetes management outreach: This program promotes earlier detection of diabetes, a disease that affects more than 12,000 Tom Green County residents.
- Shannon care coordination: A unique program that involves premed student volunteers from Angelo State University and helps high-risk patients as they transition to their homes after a hospital stay.
- 6W: A new unit at Shannon Medical Center that focuses on enhancing the care of special needs adult patients.
The support of the Shannon Sporting Clay Shoot will help these programs continue the legacy of exceptional care for people throughout the Concho Valley and West Texas.
The 15th annual shoot is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, July 18 and 19, at the San Angelo Claybird Association.
