Chairman of Shrine Club
KOSCIUSKO – Over 1,000 shooters, and over $7,000 was raised during the 20th annual Shrine Turkey Shoot two-day event.
By far one of our best shoots yet and a reflection on our caring community from the donors to the shooters and volunteers. Family entertainment was had by all, parents, children and grandparents alike. Even those spectators, who only came to observe the fun or have food and fellowship and support the mission of the Kosciusko County Shrine Club.

Very special thanks go to the ladies of the Shrine for preparing and serving food and coordinating the silent auction. Without them the event would not be possible. Brett Anderson and family were a tremendous contributor this year and made a significant gift to the Shrine Club and local shooting sports for our youth. Sons of the American Legion Squadron 49 made a generous contribution directly to the Shrine Hospital and deserve our heartfelt thanks. The toy donation to the hospital was made possible by Mike Biddle of Biddle Auction Company and his clientele for the second year in a row and will help to brighten Christmas for many hospital patients. Last, but not least, all the members of the Kosciusko County Shrine Club who gave of their time and talents to make this event one of the club’s most popular and prosperous annual fundraisers.
May God bless each and every one of you. Your selfless contribution will be of benefit to those children the Shrine serves through our philanthropic missions each year, over 2,000 in the Chicago Hospital alone.
