The 14th Annual Matt Light Celebrity Shoot-Out, our signature annual fundraiser, and one the most exciting and unique charity events in North America is happening on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018, at Rhode Island’s world-class Addieville East Farm.
The Shoot-Out combines a clay-shooting tournament, an outdoor concert, fun and sportsman-like contests and demonstrations, and even fine-dining and a large-scale fireworks display -- for a memorable day for both sponsors and “shooters,” alike. The event has attracted celebrities from the world of sports, music, TV and entertainment, and is routinely a record-breaker in terms of money raised, the number of attendees and the phenomenal media coverage generated. We’ll raise the bar in 2018 again by adding more celebrities, more competition, and more exciting exhibitions to what has come to be known as the premiere shooting event in the country!
In addition to the shooting tournament and contest, guests can visit with exhibitors, such as Gooseman Game Calls, Kawasaki, Orvis Fly Fishing, Swarovski Optik, Hasbro, Ball & Buck, Vital X Archery, KRAVE Jerky, Tactical 5.11, Brian Fox Studios and sponsoring gun companies: Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Sig Sauer, Kimber, Savage Arms, and major donor Benelli. Other onsite activities are offered, like fly-fishing, 3-D archery, a Nerf Shooting Gallery “Big Kids Zone,” a handgun range, and rides on the Kawasaki Teryx.
To date, the Shoot-Out has raised over $6 million dollars for initiatives that include various programs for at-risk teens in Rhode Island, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, Louisiana and two locations in Massachusetts.
The nonprofit’s objective: to provide at-risk youth with unique outdoor learning experiences that assist them in meeting, and exceeding all their goals. Matt’s greater vision has always been to support larger nonprofit groups’ efforts and impact more kids from around the country, and he’s done so through dozens of other Chenoweth Trails initiatives and community events that brought nearly 7,000 people through the facility in 2017!
Sponsorship materials will be available soon, but foursomes, dinner tickets and day passes are already on sale! In addition to supporting a great cause, the Matt Light Celebrity Shoot-Out provides an exceptional team-building opportunity for staff, or a one-of-a-kind “thank-you” to top clients or customers.
