3rd Annual Haselden Shoot Raises Nearly $80K for Disabled Veterans
Centennial, CO – Last month Haselden Construction held their 3rd annual clay shoot raising nearly $80,000 for Homes for Our Troops, an organization providing mortgage-free, specially adapted housing for veterans disabled in Afghanistan and Iraq. This year’s proceeds will go towards building a home in Golden, CO for Marine Lance Corporal Sean Carroll who was wounded in Iraq.
Haselden was honored to have Timothy McHale, Homes for Our Troops President and CEO, attend the shoot again this year. “Haselden Construction is truly an outstanding patriotic company that deeply cares for America’s veterans and their families,” said McHale. “Their kind and generous gifts to Homes for Our Troops are making significant impacts on the lives of many Colorado veterans as we continue to build specially adapted homes for our most severely injured veterans.”
This year the event, held at the Kiowa Creek Sporting Club, hosted over 230 people from 48 different companies—about a 20% increase from last year. Haselden plans to continue the event each summer and knows it will continue to flourish, allowing for higher donations to the organization each year.
This is the third year Haselden project estimator Laura Hoff has organized the event, which has raised a total of almost $200,000 in that time. “The support we get from our sponsors is truly amazing” stated Hoff. “Each year the event continues to grow, and it’s incredible to see the impact right here in our own community.” Co-organizer Josh Huff, also an estimator at Haselden, adds, “The day wouldn’t be possible without the help of all the volunteers – this year we had nearly 60!”
