Sportsmen Givin’ Back banquet to benefit eight local causes

Posted on September 24, 2019 by Staff reports

Sportsmen Givin’ Back, a local non-profit organization aimed to help the less fortunate in the community, on October 5 will host its annual fundraising banquet, benefitting eight causes this year.

Each year, Sportsmen Givin’ Back hosts a family friendly banquet and donates 100 percent of its fundraising profits to local charities and individual recipients. Organizers say the combined impact of these charities will benefit thousands of people within the local communities.

Established by avid outdoorsmen and lovers of the great outdoors, Sportsmen Givin’ Back seeks ways to create opportunities for others to experience similar adventures, such as fishing trips for special needs kids or hunting excursions for wounded warriors.

Sportsmen Givin’ Back takes its commitment to helping the community a step further by hosting the annual banquet to raise money for various local causes and charities.

Banquet attendees have the opportunity to enjoy a guest speaker who also enjoys the outdoors and related activities, win door prizes, and bid on silent auction items, all while supporting truly deserving causes.  Additionally, organizations and individuals can choose to sponsor the event, donate door prize and silent auction items, or purchase raffle tickets for a Big Green Egg package ($10 per raffle ticket). Note – you do not have to be present at the event to win the raffle drawing.

The 2019 Sportsmen Givin’ Back Banquet will take place Saturday, October 5th at Immanuel Baptist Church in Pace. This year’s speaker will be Johnny Morgan, along with his Labrador Retrievers as special guests. LaneShark USA is the presenting sponsor for this year.

Banquet tickets are $10, and raffle tickets are also $10. Tickets are available via Eventbrite. To buy tickets, sponsor or donate email
