The 411: The 20th annual MFAH sporting clays fundraiser drew a well-heeled shooting crowd and fans, totaling 275 guests, for a morning competition that boasted 163 competitors. For those not so keen on pulling the trigger, the day featured luxury shopping at booths such as Phyllis Tucker Antiques, Maida's Belts and Buckles and Pickard & Co. Boots. Colleen and John Kotts chaired the shoot that raised close to $267,000 for the museum.
Following the competition, guests grazed through a fancy lunch catered by the Coronado Club and listened to the western sounds of Pat Gavin and the Buckaroo Band. Then they applauded the clay shoot champs. Reed Morian took the title of Master Class Men’s Champion, followed by Tim McGinty as runner‐up. Gaye Kelsey and Bonnie McMurtry took Ladies Champion and Ladies Runner‐up, respectively. The event honored Fine Art of Shooting founders Meredith Long and Jay Herbert.
