Jimmy Simpson Foundation Hosting Clay Shoot Tournament Oct. 14-15 to Benefit Capital Expansion of Safehaven, Home for Brain-Injured Adults

Proceeds from the event at the Beretta Shooting Grounds will help to fund a 31,000 square foot expansion from 12 to 18 beds.

ROCK SPRING, Ga. (August 25, 2021) – The Jimmy Simpson Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing exceptional care to the traumatic brain injury community, will hold its first annual Clay Shoot Tournament October 14-15 at the Beretta Shooting Grounds by High Adventure Company at Barnsley Resort in Kingston, Ga. Proceeds will go towards the foundation’s  capital campaign, Foundations for the Future. 

During day one of the two-day event, Dale Bouchillion of the National Sporting Clays Association will lead semi-private lessons as part of a shooting clinic. The tournament itself will take place on Friday, October 15.

Foundations for the Future is aimed at expanding its Safehaven facility in Walker County, Ga., from 12 to 18 beds to accommodate the rising need for resources for traumatic brain injured and ventilator-dependent individuals in the Chattanooga area. Once completed, the expanded facility will grow to approximately 31,000 square feet, with 28,000 of that space dedicated to direct services.

“The wonderful thing about the Clay Shoot Tournament is that participants get to have a lot of fun and learn from the best in the business while supporting a great cause. Every single dollar raised will help us get closer to our goal of expanding so that we can serve our residents and their families better than ever before,” said Vickie Hodge, CEO of the Jimmy Simpson Foundation.

Sponsorship opportunities for this year’s event are limited, and they range from $1,000 for an Individual Team, which includes one four shooter team and shooters’ gifts, to $7,500 for a Presenting Sponsor.

Supporting sponsorships ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 are also available for businesses interested in contributing to the cause without participating in the actual tournament.

The Jimmy Simpson Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and all sponsorships are tax-deductible.

A rain date for the tournament has been scheduled for November 2-3, 2021.

About the Jimmy Simpson Foundation

The Jimmy Simpson Foundation is dedicated to providing the best quality care for the brain injury community. It was founded as a 501c3 organization by Carol Simpson after her husband, Jimmy, suffered an anoxic brain injury as a result from a fall out of a hospital bed after surgery. While searching for long term placement for Jimmy, it was difficult to find an environment that fostered individuality as well as provided a safe home environment. As with many non-profit organizations, the family saw a need within the brain injury community and stepped up to meet that need.
