The idea for a Fun Shoot to raise funds for the veterans and their families was conceived by members of the Oak Ridge Sportsmen's Association. This year marks our 12th year holding this event. Over the past eight years we have raised more than $223,000 for charities like the Wounded Warrior Project, The Fisher House Foundation, HonorAir Knoxville and, for the last three years, Smoky Mountain Service Dogs. We have decided that since Smoky Mountain Service Dogs is a local, and such an extremely worthy organization, we will continue to raise funds for them in 2020.
You can donate year round to the worthy cause that we support. When you have a few extra dollars or when the inspiration strikes you just click the "Donate" button below. The funds will be sent to our bank and we will send a quarterly check to veterans and their families. These funds will count to our total goal for each year.
This year in our continuing effort to expand and improve Pull For Our Veterans, with the ultimate goal of donating more money to the veterans and their families, we have expanded our sponsor drive to include corporate sponsors. East Tennessee is very patriotic and support our nations veterans in many ways and corporate sponsorship is an excellent way for companies in the area to signify their support to veterans and their families through East Tennessee's own Pull for Our Veterans, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
