    4th Annual Shoot For Abbi Charity Event, Decew Gun Club, Thorold, ON

    “Shoot For Abbi” Charity Event

    Abbi Monaghan is 13 years old and living with cystinosis, a rare disease for which there is currently no cure. Because cystinosis is such a rare disease (as far as we know Abbi is the only person in the Niagara Region with it) there is little government funding so most money raised for cystinosis research is done through private efforts such as this one.

    If you live close to the Niagara area come out and bring the family. Children are encouraged to participate. Don't have a gun? Never shot before? Not a problem. We will have guns and plenty of ammunition.

    Concerned about safety? Did you know that shooting is one of the safest of all sports? As long time shooters, we realize that you might be concerned about bringing your children to an event like this. Safety is our business and we will have many instructors to ensure that everyone has a safe, fun day. There will be lots of prizes including a raffle for a $1400 Traeger Smoker BBQ (tickets $5), a BBQ and a 50-50 draw.

    There is a $20 entry fee, payable at the door (all proceeds go to cystinosis research). Included in the admission fee: 2 targets, (one practice, one elimination) and a hamburger or hot dog and beverage. Shooters can better their score by purchasing an additional target and 10 rounds of ammunition for $5.00.

    For a small fee there will also be a wide variety of exotic firearms that can tried out.

    For those bringing their own rifles, this is a 22LR rifle match, fired at bingo targets from sitting benches. These are random score targets so if you can hit the paper you have a chance to win. Adults and children will have separate sections. Any firearm action is permitted that requires the shooter to take their finger off the trigger to chamber another round (i.e. bolt, lever etc.). NO SEMI AUTOS.

    Last year we raised over $11,000 at this event ($25,00 total in 3 years) and hope to do even better this year. Donations and sponsorships are gratefully accepted. Please contact me if you are interested in donating.

    You are invited to "Shoot for Abbi".
