Shoot­ing for a cure

Field and Game - - FGA BRANCH NEWS -

The main tar­get for the an­nual Shoot for a Cure Ladies’ Day in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory was to raise much needed funds for research into ovar­ian cancer.

The an­nual shoot is a joint ven­ture be­tween North­ern Ter­ri­tory Field & Game and the SSAA Dar­win branch.

The event, which started three years ago, was held on June 3, at­tract­ing 194 women and rais­ing $9803 for Ovar­ian Cancer Aus­tralia.

Sup­port for the event has grown over the years with many lo­cal busi­nesses do­nat­ing prizes for the raf­fles and a silent auc­tion.

The Ladies’ Day orig­i­nally started as a way to get more women into shoot­ing but has de­vel­oped into a spec­tac­u­lar fundraiser that also ed­u­cates women on shot­gun and pis­tol safety and shoot­ing skills.
