Our beginning and our mission.
Our journey began in 1996 when a group of Grundy and Will County businessmen with a common interest in outdoor sports and a desire to help those less fortunate created Sportsmen for Charity. Our foundation first began with smaller events including golf outings, shooting events and raffles. While these events were successful and received great responses from our community, we wanted to create a single, larger event that could combine the themes of these past fundraising events while demonstrating the overall impact that the money we collectively raise has on others who need it. In 1999, we began hosting the annual Sportsmen’s Banquet event that has grown steadily with each passing year. In the years since the first Sportsmen’s Banquet, Sportsmen for Charity and the banquet attendees have raised over $1,500,000.00 for local charities together. Last year, we were able to contribute $100,000 to Center for Disability Services (formerly UCP) , $13,000 to Hope Helps, $7,500 to Big Brother/Big Sisters, $5,000 to Special Connections, $10,000 to Operation St. Nick, and the remaining proceeds to other local charitable organizations. With your help in 2019, our mission will continue and hopefully yield an even bigger contribution than the years past. Our donors make it all possible, and we sincerely thank you for your continuous support.
Our Mission continues this year with Sportsmen for Charity XVIII. Please review the information on this site for event activities, raffle tickets, and banquet tickets. You can contribute this year by purchasing the raffle tickets, dinner tickets, or donating an item for our Silent or Live Auction. You can also become an event sponsor and join last year's 54 businesses that provided over $17,000 in proceeds through the Sportsmen’s Banquet. You can register to contribute online or by contacting a Sportsmen for Charity member.
We take pride in the fact that all of the net proceeds made from our banquet are donated locally to organizations in the Will/Grundy area. Sportsmen for Charity was created with the intention to give back to our community on a scale large enough to produce real, tangible changes that positively impacts the lives of everyone who lives here. Our contributions are made possible through all of our participants and sponsors, and we hope to see you at this year's event!
