Clay Shoot Targets Money for a Good Cause

Rolling hills, cattle, longhorns and llamas on 800 acres at the beautiful Beaumont Ranch in Grandview await clay shooters signed up for the River Legacy Foundation Sporting Clay Shoot on June 21. Event organizers say all participants – regardless of ability – have an equal chance to win with the Lewis Class system that will be used for scoring.

Before the fun of the competition begins at noon, participants will enjoy lunch in the air-conditioned Lone Star Barn where they will return after the shoot for an awards ceremony, appetizers and drinks.

In charge of the event are Robert Kembel and Cliff Mycoskie. “The shoot provides the funds to enable the Foundation to continue providing its unique environmental education programs to children and families. These programs help foster the next generation of environmental stewards,” writes Mycoskie in an announcement.

Autographed sports memorabilia and a suite seat at a Texas Rangers game are among items up for bid in a live auction. The lucky winners in a raffle will take home guns, golf packages and other exciting merchandise. Raffle tickets are $25 or 5 for $100.

Registration fee is $200 per shooter or $750 for a team of four. To sign up, contact Kristi Payne at 817.860.6752, ext. 107

Southern Recipes for Mission Arlington

More than 200 guests enjoyed a great evening last month at the Southern Recipes Grill located at 2715 N. Collins St. to raise money for Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex.

In charge of the event was restaurant owner Solly Suleman with a big assist from Dennis Wood and Larry Ricks who cooked the meat entrees served at the party. In this fifth year of the fundraiser, families enjoyed an evening of visiting while they dined on barbecue and fish donated by Suleman along with side dishes and desserts brought by attendees.

Suleman credits his staff and the volunteers for tirelessly working to make sure the evening was a success. A donation box at the door was filled with money to give to Mission Arlington and was presented to the charity’s executive director, Tillie Burgin.

Among many volunteers working on the event was Sharon Dougherty who said, “This is a completely unique event that is extremely well organized and attended by a real cross section of Arlington. The advertising is word of mouth and the results are amazing.”

Movie in the Gardens

Load up the car with kids, friends and neighbors for a free family outing on Saturday in Gardens Park located at 3128 Elkins Dr. in Dalworthington Gardens. The main event is a screening of the popular animated film, UP, about the man who ties balloons to his house and flies away for adventures in South America. It’s all on the big screen complete with Dolby Surround Sound.

Arrive early before the movie under the stars starts at 9 p.m. to enjoy free hot dogs and maybe some fishing in the lake at the park or a quick game of softball. Snow cones and refreshments will be available for purchase.

Sounds like the perfect way to kick off summer fun.
