Wow…

The 5th Annual Headwaters for Heroes Combat Veterans Benefit is now past us.
 
And I am not certain how to put it into words, except WOW!!!!!
 
This was by far the best event we have ever had. The day started with a windy but nice day and 25 teams competing in our sporting clay shoot. We had men, women, kids, veterans, and active duty military entered in the sporting clay shoot. Many thanks to Tournament Targets for running a smooth fast paced shoot.
 
The sporting clay shoot was followed by an incredible BBQ and Craw fish Boil. The H4H Cookers and the our Louisiana Bunch did an awesome job. With Pastor Mike Weaver of Wild Ride Ministries providing the blessing over the meal, and the Harper Boy Scouts Troop #139 posting the colors showing the patriotism of the community.
 
We then rolled into the live auction with a diverse group of items, that certainly must have pleased those that attended, and thanks to our auctioneer Danny Feller the auction moved along at great pace. many buyers bidding on some great items from guns to hunts to jewelry to art work.
 
There were two highlights of the auction. The first being the sale of the G2 Ranch hunt. Phillips Casey one of our Purple Heart Veterans had the opportunity last year to hunt at the G2. Phillips Casey is also heading to Australia for a cutting edge surgery that will allow him to finally receive a prosthetic leg that will allow to walk without the aid of crutches. We dedicated the proceeds of the sale of the G2 Ranch hunt to help Phillips Casey with travel and living expenses to have this procedure done. Our attendees came together and opened their check books and what a wild ride it was, but in the end we raised $17,500.00 for Phillips Casey and his family to make the trip to Australia. H4H will monitor the trip and the procedure and will keep you posted as to his progress.
 
The second was the sale of the Chris Kyle painting that was done by one of local high school girls Hallie Perry. This painting sold and then was donated back and when it was all said and done we raised $7,500.00. What a tribute to a true American hero.
 
The night ended with a dance and music by Felix Truvere.
 
Like I said it was an incredible event with our total monies brought in being $94,000.00, like I said earlier WOW!!!
 
I cannot begin to thank our host’s enough, Vic and Lori Hollender the owner of Headwaters Saloon. I also cannot thank our fantastic volunteers who work countless hours putting this event together. That is the beauty of Headwaters for Heroes it is a group of like hearted people making this all possible.
 
Keep an eye what Headwaters for heroes has coming, we will doing events and entertaining our veterans with either fishing or hunting events every month from now until the end of the year, thanks to all of you that took part in the 5th Annual Headwaters for Heroes Combat Veterans Benefit.
 
It is not to late to donate, so pass the word.
 
Thank You For Your Support.
