Participants for this year’s South Florida PMC Shoot for a Cure gather for the firearm safety lecture before heading to the range.

A total of $32,000 is headed for use by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society thanks to the efforts of the Greater South Florida Trades Council.

“Each year, our Shoot for a Cure effort has gotten larger and larger,” reported PMC Secretary-Treasurer Kris Hopkins. “We had nearly 100 shooters from a lot of different unions participate and help raise money for a great cause.”

The third annual Shoot for a Cure sponsored by the Port Council took place May 26 at a range near Ft. Pierce, Florida. Union members with family and friends shoot clay targets from various stations. Firearm safety is foremost at the outing.

Hopkins said plans already are underway for next year’s event, which should again be held in the late spring.
