Hunter's Pointe Shooting Club Holds "Blasting for Boobs" Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

The Hunter's Pointe Shooting Club and Sporting Clays held the first ever "Blasting for Boobs" breast cancer event. 

The event rose over $9,000 from men and women who paid to shoot more than 4000 pink clay targets on the shooting trails.   

Brenda Chamness, the owner of Hunters Pointe, came up with the idea for the event after cancer struck close to home.  

"This kind of sets a tone to the heart because we've got three employees that have past away in recent years," Chamness said.  

Chamness hoped the event at her shooting range would encourage everyone to get involved with the fight against cancer.   

All of the custom-made clay targets, ammunition and supplies were donated to the event so all proceeds could go to breast cancer research. 

Participants said the event was a perfect excuse to get outside and shoot.

"It's just fun because the girls get to shoot and they give us guns," participant Nikki Beck said.

The event's clever slogan, "Supporting the Original "True Pair," was inspired by a type of sporting clays' shot.  Chamness said a true pair occurs when two targets are launched at the same and the shooter must hit both targets.

Professionals and first-time shooters participated in the event, showing that everyone can help fight cancer.

"It's touched me, its touched many people, it will continue to touch people and we need to fight it and so today is a good way to do that," participant Pat Beck said.
