Camp Hope is a retreat for combat-wounded soldiers comfortably situated on the grounds of Chris Neal Farm, a 170-acre sanctuary, located in Farmington, MO about 70 miles southeast of Lambert-St. Louis Airport. It was created by William “Mike” White and his wife, Galia, as a tribute to their son, Christopher, who was killed fighting for our country in Iraq. Camp Hope is a nonprofit organization that sees to it that every dollar donated goes to help war-wounded soldiers. For more information on this incredible foundation and how you can help, go to CampHopeUSA.org.
Mancave Archery has now been open for two years, and is proud to be able to give back in any way they can to the military community. The facility was opened aptly on September 11th, 2010 by Staff Sergeant Maples of the US Army and his wife Jen, and has been providing quality service and expertise to local bow enthusiasts around the area. To find out more about their unique services / products, or to schedule a lesson, please go to MancaveArchery.com.
This two day event is sure to be a modern day Hoot-n-Annie with lots of knee-slapping and food slinging going on. All of this will benefit a wonderful foundation – Camp Hope. For any questions please contact Staff Sergeant Maples at (417) 471-1802.
