This past Monday, on March 25th, over 150 shooters gathered at the Greater Houston Gun Club for our Fourth Annual Shoot Out ALS Sporting Clay Shoot raising $141,185 to support the fight against ALS!
At the tournament we honored ALS Hero Steven Sykes, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2014. Before his diagnosis Steven enjoyed an active lifestyle- mountain biking, skiing, trail running and playing golf along with his two children and wife Laura. After his diagnosis he may have had to slow down physically, but he refused to let ALS stop him or his love for the outdoors. He continued to play golf well into 2016 and in 2017 he and his wife journeyed across the country in their RV to make the most out of the time they had left.
“Regardless of the disease that is affecting you it is the people that surround you that effect how you live with the disease instead of die from it.” – Steven Sykes
After the clay shoot, guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening of cocktails, dinner, awards and auctions. Attendees bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences like an alligator hatching trip, a seven day Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf and Spa resort trip for two, a guided airboat fishing trip and more!
Thank you to all of our guests and sponsors who made this incredible day happen, and for continuing to support the fight against ALS.
