A 501c3 Match Charity

The Gulf Coast Championship is charity match. All match profits and all raffle proceeds are donated to Homes for Our Troops (HFOT).

HFOT's Mission: To build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.

HFOT is an A-rated charity with only 10% administrative cost. This a very worthy cause and we are honored to have the opportunity to support them.

We are currently seeking firearms, cash, and other items with a value of $500 or more for our raffle table. Last year's items included 3 firearms, 2 Mantis-X Systems, and CASH!
We look forward to helping our sponsors advertise and impressing our shooters with an awesome raffle table!

2023 Sponsorship and Vendor Representation
