HomeAid's Trap Shoot
Unique Shooting Event Raises Money and Awareness to Build Homeless Housing Facilities through the Generosity of the Building Industry
In its 12th year, Trap Shoot is a unique fundraising event where teams of five compete against each other by shooting traps (i.e. palm-sized clay discs) for high score.
Trap Shoot brings together the various constituents that enable HomeAid to build its multi-unit housing facilities, including homebuilders, their trade partners, their suppliers and service provider organizations that serve on the front lines of homelessness for a day of fun, completion and giving.
An interesting alternative to traditional golf tournament fundraisers, Trap Shoot raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for the HomeAid chapters that host the events. Money is raised through sponsorships, team ticket sales, and accompanying raffles and auctions. Three HomeAid chapters on the West Coast hold Trap Shoot events, including Inland Empire, CA (San Bernardino); Northern California (Bay Area);and Sacramento.
The trapshooting competition is comprised of teams in a day of fun and a chance at winning the title of HomeAid Trap Shoot Champion. The event, which is run by volunteers, serves to raise community awareness about the issue of homelessness through media coverage and community participation.
