Mossy Oak Properties, Inc. hosted the 2nd Annual “Fox Hole Shootout,” a golf, sporting clays, and dinner to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Catch-A-Dream Foundation, and Sportsmen Organized for Law Enforcement (SOLE) on June 7, 2018 in West Point, Mississippi. Nearly 600 dinner attendees, 80 shooters, 136 golfers, 50+ volunteers and approximately 40 sponsors assisted in raising a net of $165,000, surpassing the $115,000 raised in 2017, which will be distributed to the three charities.
The event began with sporting clays at Prairie Wildlife, an Orvis-endorsed wing shooting lodge near West Point and continued with a four-man scramble at Mossy Oak Nature’s Golf course, the “#3 Best New Course of 2017,” according to Golf Digest. The day was capped off with a dinner and live auction that evening at Town Creek Pavilion, which featured food prepared over “live fire” by several award-winning chefs, and entertainment by acclaimed Nashville songwriters Bobby Pinson, Ashton Shepherd and Ben Gallaher.
Chris Hawley, CEO/President and Co-founder of Mossy Oak Properties commented on the success of the first-year event, saying:
“The Mossy Oak enterprise lives by the belief that the good we do lives long after we are gone. We could not be more pleased that our work in this year’s event will benefit three deserving charities, and we look forward to growing the impact our event has for these charities in the years to come. Our success this year would not have been possible if not for our sponsors, volunteers, and participants, and we cannot thank all who made this year a success enough. The generosity of everyone involved was overwhelming.”
The 2019 Fox Hole Shootout will be held Thursday, June 6 in West Point, Mississippi. For more information on sponsoring or participating, visit www.foxholeshootout.com.
