A variety of items were donated by local businesses for the Jamestown Skeet Club fundraiser, including Wegmans, Webb’s Resort, Cappola’s Pizzaria, Andriaccio’s, Ellicottville Brewing Company, National Comedy Center, and Phil & Cindy’s, as well as friends of the Skeet Club including the Piece ‘N Harmony Quilt Guild. In total, $2,520.00 was raised.

Additionally, for the past five years, a matching grant of up to $2,500 has been provided by Great Lakes Insurance Services Group and co-sponsor Erie Insurance, which brought this year’s total to $5,020. Over the past eight years the Jamestown Skeet Club has sponsored its annual spaghetti dinner more than 100 trykes have been provided to local and regional riders.
