Industry news Taurus Helps Raise $255,000 For Boy Scouts T he South Florida Council, Boy Scouts of America, held its Second Annual Sporting Clays Invitational, presented by Taurus International Mfg., in October. The event, held at Quail Creek Plantation in Okeechobee, Fla., raised more than $255,000 to benefit outreach programs for underprivileged youth in South Florida and the Boy Scouts’ Camp Seminole in Davie, Fla. More than 200 guests and 44 teams participated in the sport- ing clays tournament. Sponsors for the event included Taurus International Mfg., the NRA and NSSF. “The programs of the Boy Scouts of America are essential to shaping the lives of young people in a positive way, something that is very important to the future of this great nation,” said Bob Morrison, president and CEO of Taurus International Mfg. and the Sporting Clays Invitational chairman. “It has been an honor to help get this event started, and use our contacts and resources to raise the needed dollars to keep scouting strong and growing for the South Florida Council, Boy Scouts of America.” The Sporting Clays Invitational proceeds will benefit more than 3,000 youths in rural and inner-city areas who would otherwise not have access to scouting programs.
