Last Friday, May 1st, Taylor’s Gift Foundation hosted our 4th Annual Sporting Clays Tournament at the Dallas Gun Club. With more participants than we've ever had, it was a very successful event for Taylor's Gift! Mother Nature was very kind and gave us beautiful weather which added to the excitement of the day. It was a great day full of shooting sporting clays, enjoying good food, and winning incredible prizes and auction items.
A Beautiful Day for Fundraising
“Thanks to Taylor’s Gift for organizing the Sporting Clays Tournament. It was a great day, a fantastic facility and the volunteer support was outstanding. Certainly one of the best organized and run charity events that I have attended. We took the opportunity to challenge our friends, associates and competitors in our industry to “compete for a cause” and we had a great time and thank the other teams for joining us for a day of friendly competition.”

"The annual Taylor's Gift sporting clays tournament is forever ingrained in my spring itinerary! I am fortunate that a good friend let me know about this event 4 years ago, and I do all that I can to participate every year. The blessing that Taylor gave us out of the tragic loss of her life, is the life affirming joy that comes from spending time with friends, family, and colleagues devoted to keeping her legacy alive through the generous support of Taylor's Gift. If you have never participated before, do so next year--it will change your life, and make you realize how wonderful the gift of life is, and how blessed we are to be able to help those who face such challenging circumstances."
With a strong score of 82, the Broad Oak Energy team, hosted by Robert Skinner, came in first place in the tournament. Other highlights of the tournament included the live auction - presented by award-winning auctioneer, Doak Lambert - with prizes that included fantastic duck and hog hunts, a Beretta gun, and a driving experience on a private race track. What a day!
Congratulations to the Broad Oak Energy team for winning first place!
A special thank you to all of our sponsors, committee members, and attendees. YOU are all instrumental in benefiting our mission and our Legacy Gift program so that we can assist donor families in need.
We can't wait until next year's shoot and we hope to see you there!
A big thank you to all our awesome volunteers!
