We are writing to provide an update on this year’s COAC Patriot Shoot originally scheduled for Saturday August 29, 2020. We have come to the difficult conclusion that we must cancel this year’s event, despite its significant fundraising power and appreciated opportunity for fellowship. The event itself would not be feasible, or quite honestly, very enjoyable with current COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines.
The Patriot Shoot is the primary fundraiser for Central Ohio American Charities:
- Because of this annual event, we were able to give $30,000 last year to Save A Warrior, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the staggering suicide rate plaguing our veterans, active-duty military and first-responders.
- In total, we’ve raised more than $500,000 for the veteran-focused organizations we’ve supported since COAC’s founding in 2008, including The Resurrecting Lives Foundation, The Wounded Warrior Project, and Save A Warrior.
Although we will not be together in person this year, we hope you will still consider sending a tax-deductible donation which will again benefit our wounded veterans. As a plus, because we will not have the expenses of an actual event to deduct from your donation, the entire amount will go toward our important initiatives.
Please be assured that we remain committed to the next Patriot Shoot — our 13th sporting clays event — and we will keep you posted as we know more about the date and time. We thank you in advance for your continued support. Let us know if you have any questions and please send your valued donation today!
