Congratulations to all the winners of 2019! Bitterroot Blasters’ head coach, Marvin Allsop, shared how his shooting team became our top fundraiser in 2019:
“In November when the MidwayUSA Foundation posted the Rockstar standings, we decided that we were going to swing for the top 5 with everything we had. We challenged our coaches, we pushed our parents, athletes, and sponsors, to help us reach this goal. We beat up everyone for support. So many people believed in the direction we were going, and they really got behind our team. We sold sponsorships, and raffle items all year to everyone. We then hosted an invitational shoot, with auctions, raffles, and a few other games, and that shoot turned into the largest fundraiser for our team.” Marvin Allsop; Bitterroot Blasters
