Sporting Clays Shooting Tournament & Fishing Rodeo
I would like to personally invite you to join me in supporting the Green Beret Foundation and the National World War II Museum through a sporting clays shooting tournament and a fishing rodeo scheduled for May 18th and 19th in Grand Isle, Louisiana. This annual event will pit former NFL standouts and other celebrities in a one-of-a kind tournament on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.Joining me will be many of my former teammates, current NFL players, local celebrities and military personnel, all here to honor the heroes that fight for our freedoms everyday. This two-day event kicks off with a sporting clays shooting tournament, a Chef’s Dinner featuring some of the best chefs from New Orleans, followed by an auction with one-of-a-kind items. All of this is followed the next day by a fishing rodeo, fishing awards and a concert.
During my time as a football coach for the United States Military Academy at West Point, I had the honor of meeting and coaching outstanding students who serve to protect our country and allow us the freedom to have events like this. The drive to start this organization and give back was fueled by a visit to Walter Reed hospital to see a former player who was severely injured during his tour. This event is very personal to the entire Black & Gold team, which is driven by my entire family, some of which are current active military.
We need your help to make this event successful and have no doubt, once you join the unique Black & Gold event family, you will be just as invested as we are. We would love to have you on board as a sponsor and are also open to other ways you may want to be involved. Thank you so much for taking the time and we look forward to seeing you in May.
