The South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind Foundation is thrilled to announce the success of the 11th Annual Bobby Dobson Memorial Aim High & Let 'em Fly Sporting Clay Tournament, which raised over $40,000 to benefit students at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind (SCSDB).
With 27 participating teams, the Aim High event was held on Friday, August 25 at the Cleghorn Gun Club in Rutherfordton, N.C. The event drew outdoor enthusiasts from across the region, and teams engaged in competitive clay shooting at various stations, each designed to challenge and entertain shooters of all skill levels.
This annual event was named in memory of the late Bobby Dobson, longtime Board of Commissioner and supporter of the school, and to date, has raised over $330,000.
“The success of the event would not have been possible without the generous support of sponsors, volunteers and participants who joined together to make a difference,” said Sam Hook, Executive Director of the SCSDB Foundation. “These fundraising efforts continue to support many literacy and STEM initiatives at the school, as well as special events such as prom and educational field trips.”
Congratulations to the following winners:
1st place: Dr. John Dunbar and Chatt Gilmore
2nd place: Drew Middlebrooks and Michael Baggett (shooting on Orbis Corporation's team)
The SC School for the Deaf and the Blind Foundation would also like to thank the following event sponsors: Southern States Packaging Company and Tricor Construction.
