Meridian, Miss. Dusty Jones with the Lauderdale County Chapter of Outdoors without Limits is encouraging everyone to attend their fundraiser on November 18th at the Hamasa Shriners building to help an organization very close to his heart. Outdoors without Limits takes people with disabilities that would otherwise limit them from experiencing the great outdoors or hunting on those kinds of trips, and Jones says it's very rewarding for everyone involved.
"Just seeing them kill a deer and smiling from the shoot house back to the benefit, it's amazing. You can't put it in words. You think about it from day on out, just how awesome it is."
Doors will open at 6:00 on the 18th, with dinner at 7:00, and an auction at 8:00. All money raised will go to the Lauderdale County Chapter, as well as the national organization, and Jones says there are some very nice things you can gain by helping them financially.
"We've got guns, Yeti Coolers, tree stands, for the silent auction, and on the live auction we'll have all kinds of pictures, knives, and stuff like that."
As the group grows, one of the greatest needs they have is volunteers to actually go on the hunts with the participants, and landowners willing to offer their property.
"I express to everybody how taking one of these disabled participants out makes you realize a lot of things in life; how good we have it, and just to help somebody is a blessing to me."
Tickets will be available at the door for $20 each or $25 a couple. Table sponsorships are also available.
