The Dripping Springs Knights of Columbus Council 11695 is seeking sponsors for it’s sixth annual Hill Country Shootout, which will be held at the Longhorn River Ranch on Saturday August 26.

“Significant portions of proceeds are generated by selling raffle tickets. Thanks to sponsors, we're able to offer great raffle and door prizes as well as donated merchandise for a live auction. Also, central to our annual fundraiser is a sporting clay competition, which also relies on sponsorship to be successful.” Grand Knight Patrick Manning said.

The monies raised by the event support the Center for the Intrepid at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, where wounded soldiers receive state-of-the-art treatment and rehabilitation; and the Burke Center for Youth in Driftwood, which provides therapy and treatment for children in crisis as well as foster care and adoption services.

Proceeds from the Shootout also support Boy Scouts Troop 280, Special Olympics, and youth outreach and scholarship programs at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church, among others.

“This annual sporting clay competition is a great way to have fun, eat barbeque, visit with neighbors, and support great causes. We also encourage soldiers, veterans, and first responders in the community to participate; and also solicit sponsorships to cover their fees. To find more information about participation and sponsorship opportunities go to” Manning said.

Businesses and individuals interesting in sponsoring the event are asked to contact Craig LaRobardier at , or by phone at (614) 537-4320. The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal organization dedicated to community service. Last year, the Knights donated over $177 million and volunteered more than 75 million hours of their time to support charitable projects worldwide. Learn more at
