Ellett Brothers Contributes to YSSA
Continuing in its endeavors to cultivate and raise awareness in youth shooting sports, Ellett Brothers proudly selected the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance (YSSA) to receive $35,000 raised from the silent auction held in conjunction with the 2013 Annual Ellett Brothers Dealer Showcase in Columbia, South Carolina.
Thanks to the generous vendor donations and dealer participation, Ellett Brothers has raised over $103,000 since 2009 for the YSSA.
“The contributions and support received from the Ellett Brothers family has enabled the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance to overcome many of the limiting factors to the growth of youth shooting sports programs nationwide that are attributable to equipment and supplies. It’s an absolute pleasure to partner with such a prestigious company that shares our passion for recruiting and retaining new shooters and hunters” said Steve Miller, YSSA Executive Director.
