Shoot to Salute – A Celebrity Sporting Clay Event

Benefiting American Valor Foundation

The Florida Sports Hall of Fame is proud to present this one-of-a-kind fundraiser, hosted by NFL legend Jack Youngblood, on April 20-21, 2018. Each four-shooter team competes along with a Florida Sports Hall of Fame celebrity or a member from the prestigious Armed Forces in a 50/50, 15-station clay sporting competition at Tenoroc Shooting Sports in Lakeland, Florida.

All proceeds for this event benefit the American Valor Foundation (AVF), a registered and approved 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation committed to supporting our military Veterans, First Responders and their families through programs of fund raising efforts and direct support to individuals. AVF also honors our heroes through Memorial Scholarships.

The Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit (CKMB) is a dba of the American Valor Foundation. AVF and CKMB are established in honor of the legacy of America’s Most Honored Decorated Sniper, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Both national Veteran based and supported organizations are overseen by Chris’ parents, Mr. Wayne and Mrs. Deby Kyle, brother Jeff Kyle and sister in-law Amy Kyle. Together, they continue to impact the Veteran community via Chris’ service, legacy and his commitment to supporting his brothers and sisters in arms including their families.

I would love for people to be able to think of me as a guy who stood up for what he believed in and helped make a difference for the vets.
