WARSAW — The Annual Shrine Turkey Shoot will be held on Oct. 12 and 13, from 10 to 4 p.m. at Beeson’s Gun Range, 8994 West County Road 25 South, Etna Green.
The annual shoot is held to support the Kosciusko County Shrine Club.
Over the years, thousands of local sportsmen and their families have supported the Kosciusko County Shrine Club in raising thousands of dollars to support our multiple missions for Kosciusko County.
The Kosciusko County Shrine Club, celebrating 80+ years, is best known for the annual trip for third graders to the “Shrine Circus” (with more than 65,000 students, since 1957, taken free of charge. Furthermore, the club supports many other local and national philanthropic organizations and firmly realizes “No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.”
In 2018, a direct contribution to the Shrine Children’s Hospital totaled over $10,00 plus 100’s of toys for Christmas. On average, the county has over 125 patients treated by the Shrine Hospitals; regardless of the ability to pay.
The Turkey Shoot is a fantastic way for the community to support the local Kosciusko County Shrine Club and its philanthropic mission. The public is welcome.
Shoot a paper target, bring your own gun or we can provide one, shells are provided. Shoot for Maple Leaf Farms Duck and Serenade Food Products, WalMart Turkeys, pork packages, cash or other prizes.
Children, age 14 and under, can shoot a .410 to win a Youth .410 shotgun donated by Two Bear Arms of Etna Green (winner determined Sunday). A raffle for a Marlin 1894 lever action, stainless steel .44 mag rifle is available.
Participants may come for a shoot, or the Silent Auction.
A special appearance by Animal Welfare League of Kosciusko County, with its four-legged friends, will be seen with sporting dogs seeking their “furever home.”
Donations for the “silent auction” are still being accepted and greatly appreciated for the local children and families we serve, and may be made by calling 574-527-5351.
