TRAP, ARCHERY: Shooting event serves as food bank fundraiser

The Emergency Food Network is hosting its third annual “Shooting for Food” fundraiser at the Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club Aug. 1.

Participants will have the chance to shoot at 50 clay pigeons, with prizes awarded to the top shooters and fundraisers (individuals and teams). As many as 200 shooters are expected to take part this year.
