WACO (November 9, 2013) About 60 people attended the Cabela's Big Brothers Big Sisters Clay Shoot Saturday morning at the Waco Skeet and Trap Club off Karl May Drive.
The shoot was a new and exciting way to raise money for the youth-mentoring organization, said Megan Mawhir, the regional executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waco
Cabela's helped sponsor the event and recently donated $2,500 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waco.
"Cabela's had their grand opening last weekend and we thought they would be a great community partner to team up with and capitalize on their grand opening," Mawhir said.
"We wanted to get them involved in Waco right away."
The donation plus the money raised at the event will help the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waco match children on a waiting list with a volunteer from the organization.
Currently, there are 65 children still waiting to be placed.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a volunteer youth-mentoring organization that places caring adults in the lives of children in a one-to-one mentoring relationship.
