Members Only JC Newman Event

A special thanks to Bobby Newman for inviting us to the JC Newman factory to listen to Major Mark Nutsch speak about him and his team and their part in the war against terror after 9/11.  If you have have seen the movie 12 Strong, then you watched a movie based on Major Nutsch and his team.  Mark and a few of his teammates are now in the spirits world and have launched Horse Soldier bourbon.  Thanks to the members that attended.  Smoking Shields President Marc Hamlin made the announcement that we donated $5,000 to Southeastern Guide Dogs

Thank you to everyone that attended and made our first casino night a great success! We were able to raise just shy of $12,000 dollars! The Board of Directors and Bobby Newman thank you!

And here is a link to photos from the night:
