In 2017, CIM gathered donations to also include a silent auction during and after the Skeet Shoot. Items auctioned off included a Remington Versamax Shotgun, tickets to the Nashville Predators, and a Yeti cooler. $5,024 was raised with the silent auction, and another $5,260 with the skeet shoot to go toward our building fund.
During our Patrons meeting Friday, we also voted to donate $2,000 of our silent auction earnings to the family of Ryan Helton. Ryan is a 2008 alum that lost his battle to Ewing Sarcoma a few weeks ago. A jar was put out at the shoot and Mayday and you all were so generous as we collected $4,850 total! Then, the following week, Smyrna RMX donated another $2,500 to Ryan's fund. Our own, Jessie Boone, was able to deliver the checks to Ryan's wife, Heather, at a fundraising benefit for the family last Saturday on behalf of the CIM Patrons, Alumni and Smyrna Ready Mix.
