Jeremy Brown Fun Shoot raises money for Butler Welding
Annual Fundraiser Shoot Event in Honor of Jeremy Brown, Late Welding Student
Since the event started five years ago, the Jeremy Brown Fun Shoot has raised $18,000 for Butler Community College’s welding department. Seth Kelly started the event to honor his friend Jeremy Brown, a student in the welding program in 2003 and 2004, after he passed away in 2012 due to an ATV accident. Brown enjoyed sport clay shooting.
The Jeremy Brown Fun Shoot will be on September 15, at Lynbrooke Sporting Clays at 1419 S.W. 120 St, just north of Augusta. The event will have a 50-bird target course, thirteen different stations, five-person teams and flights starting at 9 A.M. and noon. There will also be shooting games, raffles, and door prizes. Some of the raffle prizes are a Pit Boss Pellet Grill, a cooler, and donated firearms. Registration for the event is $35 until Wednesday, and after Wednesday registration is $45. Lunch is included in the cost of registration.
The money raised for the welding department is split between an endowment (fund) and money used at the discretion of the welding instructor Matthew Galbraith, who uses that money to help students with needs or what he deems necessary.
