Welcome to the Dr. George Thomas Memorial Clay Shoot
The inaugural Dr. George Thomas Memorial Clay Shoot has been rescheduled for November 6, 2021 at the “1 in 100 Gun Club” located at 1228 FM 421 in Lumberton, Texas. This clay shoot is to celebrate the life and works of Dr. Thomas. After the clay shoot there will be food and beverages and live music. Shooters and ‘non-shooters’ are welcome to attend the festivities.
Sponsorships and Team Registration are now being accepted in preparation for the event. Proceeds will benefit The Periwinkle Foundation and the Dr. George E. Thomas Foundation at Lamar University in Beaumont Texas.
The Periwinkle Foundation, named after a plant used in the chemotherapy agent vincristine, was founded in 1983 to provide children at Texas Children’s Hospital with opportunities to “just feel normal” for one week at Camp Periwinkle. The Periwinkle Foundation is celebrating 38 years and is committed to offering positive and life-changing programs through a community of healing.
The Dr. George E. Thomas Foundation at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas was established to provide scholarships to undergraduate students pursuing careers in the health care industry.
