5th Annual Shoot for the Future - Best Event Yet!

 THANK YOU to all the veterinarians and veterinary professionals who were in attendance, sponsored or donated their time,  money and prizes Thursday, September 18th in beautiful Clear Lake, MN at Wild Marsh Sporting Clays!!

The weather was a perfect sunny 70 degrees for a fun day of sporting clays!  the 5th Annual Shoot for the Future event raised the most amount yet because of the many sponsors, volunteers and 150 players in attendance.  Thank You to all for your support and contributions!

There were many games to be played to win valuable prizes, such as, Pot Shot!, In Between!, Green Hornet!, Cat and Mouse!  What The Shell? and the Duck “Doo” Raffle.

A great program presentation was given by event sponsor Boehringer Ingelheim's Nona Nesseth, who is also the Clay Shoot Committee Chair.  There were an abundance of raffle prizes to be given away by so many generous people, doctors and companies.  We are always amazed by how many fabulous prizes are given to us to give to the attendees!

Thanks for a great time and see you next year!

THANK YOU for your ballots last year to determine the NEW LOGO!

The booth showcased MVMFs new logo and tag line on posters (that were hung in the Miracle of Birth Center at the MN State Fair) and on the newly made stand up banners.

The booth was staffed with volunteers happy to explain all that the Foundation offers and hopes to accomplish this year.  We presented our new brochure, the Pet Card Memorial Program and Sponsorship Opportunities for the upcoming Golf Classic and Clay Shoot events.
