Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is proud to announce that it will return to the Matt Light Celebrity Shoot-Out as a Target Sponsor of the 13th annual fundraising event at the Addieville East Farm in Rhode Island on Tuesday, September 19. The Matt Light Celebrity Shoot-Out is a unique charity event that combines a clay-shooting tournament with world-class sports, music and entertainment celebrities, an outdoor concert, fine-dining and a large fireworks display.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Light Foundation's initiatives, including various academic scholarships and programs for at-risk teens in Rhode Island, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, Louisiana and Massachusetts. The nonprofit's mission is to provide these youths with unique outdoor learning experiences that assist them in becoming responsible citizens and leaders in their communities.
"We are honored to once again participate in this first-class fundraising event," said Ruger President and CEO Chris Killoy. "The Light Foundation's mission is admirable, and we are proud to support the very worthy goal of helping youths find purpose through the outdoors."
"Ruger has been a longtime supporter and sponsor of the Foundation and our premiere fundraising event," said former New England Patriot and founder of the Light Foundation, Matt Light. "Their contributions go a long way toward providing life-changing opportunities to the young people we serve."
