Alzafar Shriners Pulling for Kids Charity Clay Shoot- Huge Success!

The Alzafar Shriners organization hosted their first annual Pulling for Kids charity clay shooting competition on Saturday, August 25th from 9 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio.

Over 200 competitors entered the skeet, trap and sporting shooting competition to raise money for the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Houston and Galveston, and the Alzafar Hospital Transportation Fund.

Highlights of the day included an awards ceremony for the winners, silent and live auctions, and numerous door prizes.

More than 700 South Texas Children are treated at Shriners Hospitals for Children each year, regardless of their ability to pay. Fundraisers like the Pulling for Kids charity clay shoot allow the Alzafar Shriners to help numerous children every year.

Most know the Shriners as the jolly men sporting red fezzes, elaborate clown costumes and racing around in mini-cars during Fiesta and other area parades. However, behind the fez lies a serious business: raising funds for the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children across the nation.
