The 3rd Annual Buffenbarger-Walworth Flatlanders Pheasant Hunt and Trap Shoot, sponsored by the IAM Midwest Territory, raised over $25,000 for Guide Dogs of America (GDA).
“Thank you to our many sponsors and all the IAM Districts and Locals who took part in this annual event,” said IAM Midwest Territory General Vice President Philip J. Gruber. “Without your support, this event would not have been possible. Your participation helps GDA fulfill its mission and reflects your own personal desire to help others live more independently with the loving partnership of a guide dog. We hope you will join us again in 2017.”
The Buffenbarger-Walworth Flatlanders Pheasant Hunt and Trap Shoot bears the name of former IAM International President Tom Buffenbarger and former South Dakota IAM District 5 Directing Business Representative Dennis Walworth, two avid hunters who were both in attendance. The event, held each year in the scenic flatlands of Aberdeen, South Dakota, draws trap shooters and pheasant hunters from across the country.
All proceeds are donated to Guide Dogs of America, a non-profit organization supported by the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations, and other organizations in its mission to provide guide dogs free of charge to blind and visually-impaired individuals in the U.S. and Canada.
