McNett and Local Sponsors Raise $10K for Veterans!

We're pleased to announce that we've hit our $10,000 goal and we'll be sending 10 local Veterans on the trip of a lifetime to the Hunting with Heroes™ Veterans' apprecication weekend!

Hunting with Heroes is an annual event featuring pheasant hunting, steelhead and trout fishing and other great outdoors activities exclusively for Veterans. Participants are treated to an executive level outdoor experience, free concerts, amazing BBQ and guided hunting and fishing excursions. This year’s event kicks off Friday, October 11 and ends Monday, October 14 in Klickitat, Wash.

We’ve been a proud sponsor of Hunting with Heroes since the event first started back in 2011. This year, we went all out with a title sponsorship. In addition, we wanted to send 10 extra Veterans from our local community for an incredible weekend of fun.

In order to send the 10 additional local Veterans, however, we needed to raise an extra $10K in donations. We started a fundraising site on Indiegogo, reached out to local businesses and media and held fundraisers, including an event at Kulshan Brewing Company on September 19th which raised over $500 with support from the local community.

We also challenged our staff to raise an additional $1,000. If we could raise the much needed donations, Duane McNett agreed to bring in a taco truck and provide free lunch to everyone. I’m pleased to report that the entire staff will be dining on tacos next Tuesday!

McNett Corporation also contributed an additional $1,500 to match employee donations. In addition, we would like to thank the following businesses for their help and donations:
