By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TX – Montgomery County Food Bank (MCFB) is pleased to announce Cowboy Kia as the presenting sponsor for the 8th annual “Shootout Hunger” shooting clays fundraising tournament set for September 11, 2020. The highly anticipated event will be held at the premiere shooting range Ables Gun Club in Huntsville, Texas.

Pictured at last year’s tournament are (from left): Akin Akanni – MCFB Board Member; Mark Compton, General Manager of Cowboy Kia; Gil Staley, Secretary of the MCFB Board of Directors; and Kelly Holmes, Chairman of MCFB Board of Directors.

Holding the event on such a notable day allows MCFB to honor the spirit of unity and compassion the country continues to display on September 11 as well as recognize how the Montgomery County community has united in the wake of COVID-19.

“We are excited to announce this year’s Shootout Hunger clay tournament with presenting sponsor Cowboy Kia,” said Gil Staley, MCFB board member and Shootout attendee. “Last year we raised over $100,000 and provided more than 500,000 meals to children, seniors, and families in need in Montgomery County. Every dollar raised provides five meals to our hungry neighbors and allows us to continue to fight hunger and feed hope.”
