Alzafar Shriners pull in the press for “Pulling for Kids” Media Day

Local media made it out Wednesday, August 1, 2012, to the National Shooting Complex to promote Alzafar Shriners Pulling for Kids – a charity clay shoot.  Pulling for Kids is an exciting new event coming up on August 25 to raise money for Shriners Hospitals for Children in Houston and Galveston.

WOAI-TV’s own Cleto Rodriguez started the media coverage at 5 a.m. with his “Where’s Cleto?” segment. Members of the media competed with each other to find out who the real “top gun” is in San Antonio. Michael Garofalo (WOAI-TV), Eric Johnson (WOAI-TV), Mike Hernandez (KABB-TV), Raoul Cortez (KABB-TV), Joe Reinagel (KENS-TV), Bill Taylor (KENS-TV), Phil Anaya (KENS-TV) and Leland Outz (San Antonio Express-News) competed in a Media Challenge clay shoot to generate awareness for the event. The media winners will be announced at the Pulling for Kids event.

Pulling for Kids – a charity clay shoot is happening Saturday, August 25th from 9 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio. The skeet, trap and sporting clay shoot is limited to the first 500 people to register, so shooters are encouraged to sign up quickly.  The fun includes valuable door prizes, a silent and live auction, along with breakfast, dinner and a post event celebration. For more information or to register for the event visit pulling4kids.org.
