SHOOT FOR A GREAT CAUSE!
October 19, 2017, the Detroit Gun Club Hosted the Third Annual, 100-Clay, CLAY SHOOTING INVITATIONAL
Raising over $10,000 marksmen set their sites for a great cause. Ammo, targets, and lunch were provided for all participants. Additional clays for trap, skeet, and a 5-stand was also available for purchase. The day included lunch, music with appetizers, and an award ceremony.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that post-9/11 injured service members, veterans, and their families are thriving long after they return home.

They find, fund and shape innovative solutions for the most pressing issues faced by our injured heroes, their families, and communities: from rehabilitation and recovery, education and employment, to quality of life.
Since their founding in 2006, they have: invested more than $30 million in programs to find, fund and shape nearly 300 programs nationwide, reached more than 2 million service members, veterans, and caregivers, deployed 87 cents of every dollar, on average, and are an Accredited Charity Seal Holder with the Better Business Bureau and are a GuideStar Gold Participant—signifying high standards of accountability and effectiveness among U.S. Charities.
Ten years ago, Bob and Lee Woodruff seemed to have it all. But when Bob’s armored vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq, life changed in an instant. Bob was reporting on the transfer of power between U.S. and Iraqi security forces for ABC’s “World News Tonight,” Jan. 29, 2006, when he sustained his life-threatening traumatic brain injury. The experience inspired their family to do one thing: Ensure that our nation’s impacted veterans, service members, and their families have access to the highest level of support and resources they deserve, for as long as they need it.
