The Big Easy Ranch has been announced as host for the first Swing and Blast Classic to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Champion Valley on Thursday, April 4. This event provides opportunities for sporting clay shoot competitions or 18 holes of golf. It will conclude with an elegant dinner and a lively raffle, along with a silent and live auction, and a ball drop from a helicopter.
The Live Auction promises to offer up an array of unusual and exquisite items: an African Safari, an Alaskan fishing trip, an Argentinian bird hunt, a custom 6.5 Creedmore Rifle with scope, a Blue Lacy puppy (Texas’s Official Dog), a pair of registered Longhorn Steers, an 1859 Sharps .22 four-barrel pistol with engraved handle, and much more. It will be the most amazing Live Auction ever seen in the area.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Champion Valley is a most worthy cause; it operates three clubs in Colorado and Fayette Counties: Schulenburg, Weimar, and Columbus. They currently serve over 272 boys and girls ages six–17, and their focus is to provide a safe, structured and positive environment for young people after school, during holidays, and summer vacation. These clubs have been working with children in our local communities since 2004. Currently, there are boys and girls waiting for the opportunity to be a part of these clubs.
The Swing and Blast Event Committee started working on details in October, the committee being chaired by Brent and Dr. Mazie Leftwich of Frelsburg.
Sponsorships and team spots are still available. For more information or to register, contact Brent Leftwich at 281-844-0210.
