1st Annual GWEF Annual Fundraiser  - 2012

     The First Annual George West Education Foundation Skeet Shoot and Auction kicked off on a beautiful October day in South Texas. The shooters arrived for the Skeet Shoot in the early afternoon, equipped with their shotguns and ready for a day of friendly competition. Almost fifty people broke into groups and made the rounds through the shooting stations to complete the skeet shoot and, after completing that, many moved on to an Annie Oakley competition.

     After the shoot, the second phase of the event was ready to begin. The silent auction items were on display, the dinner tables were set and the band was soon to arrive. As the other attendees arrived, they mingled with the shooters to enjoy drinks and begin the bidding on the more then 70 silent auction items. Among the highlights of these items was a beautiful black pearl necklace from Cammille’s Original Jewelry in Corpus Christi and modeled by Madi Arciba, a signed Dallas Cowboy helmet and multiple fishing trips with condo stays on the Texas Coast.

     As the Rich Lockhart Band played guests enjoyed the dinner of shrimp boil and fajitas, catered by Trout Street Bar & Grill. The live auction soon kicked off, with Riley Rhodes and Rusty Oxford serving as announcer and auctioneer. The auction was exciting as amazing items from deer feeders, to offshore fishing trips to guided whitetail hunts in the famed ranches of South Texas sold to generous bidders.

At the end of the night, as the bidders checked out, the total funds raised began adding up to ultimately exceed &75,000. It was a wonderful event leaving everyone involved ready for next year.
