Thank You Sponsors, Donors, Volunteers & Friends!

We are very proud of our inaugural Texas Ranger Classic Company "A" Sporting Clay Tournament! The day included a "Pair-in-the-Air" warm-up game, 4-person shoot, sponsor recognition, shooter awards, door prizes, food, beverages, raffle squares and an exciting live auction. None of this would have been possible without support from our sponsors, donors, volunteers, and planning committee. Each one of you played a vital part in making the Texas Ranger Classic fun, memorable... and record setting!!

Together, we raised over $100,000.00! These generous donations will afford TRAF the ability to not only aid the children of active duty Texas Rangers to seek higher education through scholarships, but to also provide emergency assistance to both retired and active duty Texas Rangers and their families. TRAF also helps to preserve and perpetuate the history and heritage of the Texas Rangers through its relationship with the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum located in Waco, Texas.
