The 2017 Labor/United Way Trap Shoot & BBQ fundraiser will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Friday, April 21, at the Winchester Trap and Skeet Facility, Route 140 and Powder Mill Road (600 Powder Mill Road) in East Alton, IL.
This is the kickoff event for the Labor/United Way Campaign.
United Way gives back more than $1 million each week into our communities by funding 170 agencies helping people in the bi-state area.
The annual trap shoot and barbecue is supported by the Greater St. Louis Labor Council, St. Louis Building & Construction Trades Council, Southwestern Illinois Central Labor Council and Greater Madison County Federation of Labor.
Last year’s event raised more than $25,000 for United Way programs in the bi-state region.
The entry fee is $70 for two rounds of trap, plus the barbecue. There will also be an option to play side games for an additional cost to be collected at the shoot. The Winchester facility provides shotguns and ammo, although you may bring your own shotgun.
The BBQ will follow the shoot at the Machinists Hall, 161 North Shamrock, in East Alton.
There are four sponsorship levels:
- 10 Gauge Sponsor for $1,000

Sponsors at each level will be displayed on signs at the range and barbecue. Sponsorship donations are tax-deductible.
