Austin Founder Lions Club
November 12, 2015
Special Event: ADFLC will present a check for $7,800 to the Center for Child Protection. The contribution reflects the success of the July 31 5th Annual Sporting Clay Shoot-out at Capital City Trap & Skeet. Sporting Clay Chairman Jim Overton will make the presentation to Tara Powdrill from the Center for Child Protection. Help celebrate a successful event that is almost doubling the amount ADFLC is contributing to this children’s advocacy center that provides critical services to children who are victims of crime or abuse.
