MOWMC has worked diligently to plan a safe event for everyone that includes breakfast, lunch, a shirt, swag bag, team golf cart, 72 shooting clays, and 12 or 20 gauge ammunition for each registered participant. Adult beverages will be served after the shoot. Registration still available online at or contact Carrie Watkins at All levels of shooters are encouraged to sign up!




“This is our largest fundraiser fun event with a fun spin on a raffle encouraging both shooters and non-shooters to participate in an event that makes a significant impact on our underserved vulnerable senior population,” said Summer Day, President, MOWMC. “Our waitlist continues to grow as the amount of our senior population increases. Every donation matters!”

Each $125 dollars donated feeds a senior for an entire month. MOWMC can deliver meals to a homebound senior for an entire year lower than the cost of one day in a hospital or ten days in a nursing home. Donate online at
