RGAS15 (The Remington Great Americans Shoot), “The Most Money Ever Raised with Guns,” returns to Rosharon, TX September 26th to benefit the Special Forces Charitable Trust and other Special Ops non profits.
100% of all monies go directly to providing meaningful and sustainable support for the Special Operations Community and their Families.
The Remington Great Americans Shoot returns for a second year this September, aiming to raise more than $1,000,000 to support truly great Americans, the men and women who are serving and have served in United States Special Operations Community.
The goal of RGAS15, hosted by the Special Forces Charitable Trust (www.specialforcescharitabletrust.org), is to again be the largest charity fundraising sporting clays shoot in history. The Special Forces Charitable provides meaningful and sustainable financial support, programs and services to the United States Army Special Forces Community and their Families.
The founder and Chair of the Remington Great Americans Shoot is Texan entrepreneur and philanthropist Mike Reynolds. “I am so proud to be joining The Special Forces Charitable Trust and Remington again in 2015 for this great event. I continue to be amazed by the number of Americans who support us in our efforts to provide real assistance for Special Operations Forces and their Families. It’s the ultimate “thank you” to those who go to battle and the families they leave behind during deployment. The goal is to surpass last year’s fundraising record of nearly $1.2 million, and, with the help of thousands of RGAS15 supporters, we’re going to do it!”
Twenty teams of five shooters each will gather on Saturday, September 26 at the Providence Plantation in Rosharon, Texas. Each team chooses a military charity about which they are passionate, and the team will have to raise a minimum of $50,000 in cash and pledges to gain entry into the shoot. The general public can donate to this great cause through our fundraising website (www.rgas.dojiggy.com).
Among the folks returning for RGAS 15 are 84 year old Laura Berry of “Lady Laura and the Hot Smokin’ BB’s,” Nicole Feratta of “Good Guns” and Sara Walker of “The Quiet Professionals.” And lending his support again is Mark Owen, former Navy SEAL and bestselling author of “No Easy Day,” and his latest book, “No Hero.”
In addition, each team will be joined by a “6TH Man,” an active duty or veteran representing a service branch. Last year’s shooting display by “6th Man” Ivan Castro, an active-duty Green Beret blinded in combat, was as amazing as it was inspiring.
On the day of the competition, each team shoots at 50 clay pigeons, and competes for amazing prizes including an R-4 Remington Gas Piston Carbine, a Remington XM2010 Sniper Rifle System, a Remington 1100 American Classic 12G and various other Remington products.
But the real winners are the military charities. Half of the proceeds go to the Special Forces Charitable Trust, and the remainder is split among the charities designated by the top five fundraising teams. 100% of all funds raised goes directly to the Special Forces Charitable Trust and the selected military charities.
Assuming we reach our $1,000,000 goal, here is how the proceeds will be distributed:
- $500,000 to The Special Forces Charitable Trust
- $150,000 to 1st place fundraising team’s designated charity
- $125,000 to 2nd place fundraising team’s designated charity
- $100,000 to 3rd place fundraising team’s designated charity
- $75,000 to the 4th place fundraising team’s designated charity
- $50,000 to the 5th place fundraising team’s designated charity
