Teams of passionate philanthropists converged at the Greater Houston Gun Club for the hotly contested 6th Annual Targets for Tourettes (T4T) sporting clays shoot benefiting the Tourette Association of Texas.
After a picture-perfect day of hammering clay birds, partygoers enjoyed an elegant dinner catered by REEF with owner and T4T food chair Bill Floyd on hand. Fielding and Meredith Cocke added fine wine straight from their own cellar to complement the succulent jambalaya and beef tenderloin—not your typical gun club fare.
Chaired by Jyl and Keith Calcote, the event included elegant displays of handmade boots by Lucchese, English Best shotguns by William & Son of London and custom belts and buckles by Maida’s Belts and Buckles. An African Safari, a field-bred black lab puppy, a unique “Lucchese Experience” package with custom-made boots and a seven-day Colorado ski vacation were some of the over-the-top auction items. Raffle items included two Beretta shotguns and a cigar-filled humidor, courtesy of Joseph’s Fine Cigars.
IW Marks Jewelers awarded T4T’s Top Shot, Brian Groody, with the IW Marksman award and Amber Haynes won Top Female Shooter. The top team—Mark Seaman, Amber Haynes, Jeff Foutch and Geoff Griffith—received custom sterling silver belt buckles and belts, handmade by Maida’s Belts & Buckles.
Topping off the affair, revelers boot-scooted late into the night to live C&W music by The Tommy Alverson Band.
