The Shelton State Community College Foundation’s 2015 Big Doe Hunt concluded with a reception honoring the scholarship fundraiser’s winners earlier this month.
Hayden Kelly was the grand prize winner, and Robert Amason was the second place winner. Both were honored alongside the project’s organizers and donors.
It’s a new kind of fundraiser for the Shelton State Community College Foundation: A big doe hunt. The first annual Big Doe Hunt competition, which began on Oct. 15, runs through Dec. 16. Proceeds from the event benefit the Foundation, which helps provide scholarships for deserving students and financial support of the college.
Participants in the inaugural Big Doe Hunt can purchase a $100 tax deductible ticket, harvest a doe and weigh the doe at one of eight participating weigh-in stations located throughout West Alabama. The winner will be announced during a special celebration on Dec. 17 on the Martin Campus of Shelton State Community College.
