The fourth annual Benelli USA Invitational Shoot, a sporting clays fundraising event, recently raised a whopping $85,000 to boost Freedom Hunters mission. Freedom Hunters, a charity dedicated to serving the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their dependents, improves the lives of soldiers and their families by taking them on outdoor adventures—most notably, hunting adventures. Held in Glenn Dale, Md., this past February, the Benelli USA Invitational Shoot easily eclipsed last year’s event.  

The highlights of the Invitational included the chance to shoot clays in a challenging competition, as well as a silent auction and raffle. The total amount of funds raised through the donations, auction and raffle--$85,000—handily beat the $55,000 from 2017’s event.

"We are extremely happy with the dramatic increase in the money raised at this year's event. Support from the industry has been wonderful," said Tim Joseph, who serves as a member of the advisory board for Freedom Hunters. "Not only are we raising dollars for an important cause, but the Benelli Invitational is also a great time to get together with industry partners and friends from across the country for a day of shooting, good food and great camaraderie.”
