Lakeside Hospice is hosting its seventh annual Aiming High fundraiser at the end of the month.
The clay shooting event is slated for 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, at the CMP, Civilian Marksmanship Program, 4387 Turner Mill Road, Talladega.
Lakeside Hospice is a faith-based nonprofit helping families during a critical time in their lives. Proceeds from the event will help fund the many programs offered by the organization.
Individual shooters can participate for $200, which includes shooting, ammo (12-gauge or 20-gauge) lunch and golf cart paired with four shooters.
The Marksmanship Team entry cost $1,000 and includes shooting, ammo, lunch, golf cart, and the company’s banner displayed.
Breakfast is provided for shooters during registration.
The event will feature a “Shotgun Raffle” for a Beretta A300 Outlander shotgun. Participants each get one ticket for the drawing.
Sponsorships are available for $200.
Awards and lunch is slated for noon after shooters return from the shoot.
Lakeside Hospice serves eight counties, including Blount, Calhoun, Coosa Etowah, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair and Talladega.
“Our fundraising efforts help support our mission throughout the year,” said Paul Garing, the executive director for Lakeside Hospice. “While most of our patients are covered by Medicare, Medicaid or insurance, a number do not have the ability to pay. We feel all individuals should have the right of hospice care at the end of life, regardless of the inability to pay.”
He said the support helps fulfill a vital service in the community.
Lakeside Hospice has been serving its communities since 1991.
