Boot Campaign’s ‘Boots, Birds & Birdies’ fundraiser set for October 10 in Pleasanton

Boot Campaign announces the inaugural “Boots, Birds & Birdies” event coming to south Texas this fall. The brand new event features a dove hunt, golf tourney and live concert by country music favorites Jack Ingram and Radney Foster. Beginning at Pleasanton Golf Club and wrapping up at Pleasanton River Park, Boots, Birds & Birdies will be a day unlike any other in Atascosa County, a community known for family-friendly fun and strong support of America’s military. Proceeds from Boots, Birds & Birdies benefit Boot Campaign, a national 501(c)3 dedicated to promoting patriotism for America and our military community, raising awareness of the unique challenges service members face during and post-service and providing assistance for military families of all generations.

John Hughes, Atascosa County resident and business owner, shared why he joined Boot Campaign’s efforts to support veterans: “I know south Texas, especially Atascosa County, is going to be so proud of the Boots, Birds & Birdies event. South Texas residents are extremely self-sufficient and amazingly giving of their hearts and their wallets. Patriotism is very much in the hearts of south Texans and has always been. I personally stand beside Boot Campaign and their ethics in issuing funds to heroes in need. We cannot wait to be a small part with so many others that will join together to serve those who have served us.”
