LE Invited To California Hospital Foundation's Shooting Fund-raiser

February 28, 2011  | 

Law enforcement personnel are invited to participate in the Hoag Hospital Foundation's 30th annual charity shoot, a day of shooting benefiting the Newport Beach hospital that offers six official clay target events for men and women shooters of various skill levels.

Triple B Clays Shotgun Sports Park in South El Monte will host the April 29 event that is sponsored by Turner Outdoorsman and the Hoag Foundation's 552 Club.

The 552 Club organizes the charity shoot. Proceeds will benefit Hoag Hospital Newport Beach, Hoag Hospital Irvine, seven Hoag Health Centers located throughout Orange County as well as the Wounded Warrior Project.

Event co-chairs Gene Lumsden, president and CEO of Turner's Outdoorsman and Marcus Berry, co-founder of Drive for a Cause will be joined by Honorary Chairman Tim Abell of ESPN2's Grateful Nation.

"After our highly successful event last year, Turner's is proud to return and support this important event that will celebrate 30 years of raising awareness and widening the circle of support for Hoag Hospital," said Lumsden who, in 2005, was inducted in the California Trap Shooting Hall of Fame for twice tying the world record in competitive trap shooting. Lumsden is a partner in Legacy Sports International, an importer of firearms based in Reno, Nevada, and Turner's Outdoorsman, a 14-store retail chain based in Southern California.

"Many people have worked tirelessly to continue this tradition in shooting sports for 30 consecutive years," said Berry. "It is really special to be part of an event with such heritage and tireless support from volunteers and the community."

The event has raised more than $1.5 million for Hoag since its inception in 1981 and has attracted more than 3,000 shooters.

Team and individual packages for this event are available for purchase by phone, or by visiting the event's website. For information about the Charity Shoot, please contact Laura Nelson at (949) 764-7211 or [email protected]
