A skeet-shooting competition sponsored by Fort Worth-based Interstate Restoration has raised $60,000 for the North Texas Veterans Initiative (NTVI).

The 17-team event at Elm Fork Shooting Sports in Dallas yesterday, called the Interstate S.H.O.W., featured a full afternoon and evening’s worth of competitive events, food and ceremonies, all designed to benefit local military veterans. SHOW stands for “Shoot Honoring our Warriors,” and Interstate plans to make it an annual event.

“At Interstate, we’re in the business of helping people put their lives back together after natural and manmade disasters, so it makes sense that we would want to help veterans to re-establish their lives as well,” said Harley Jeanise, Interstate’s regional director for Texas.

The North Texas Veterans Initiative focuses on providing aid to former military members whose circumstances have caused them to become homeless.

“Our work depends upon the support of organizations like Interstate Restoration and all the sponsors of this event who have contributed so much,” said Brian Taylor of NTVI. “We are very grateful for their involvement.”
