David Uchic from the Paralyzed Veterans of America sent us this press release announcing a sponsorhip deal with outdoors big box retailer Cabelas:
Washington DC-Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) has reached a sponsorship agreement with Cabela's, the World's Foremost Outfitter. Cabela's will support the 2007 PVA Bass Tour and the 11th Annual PVA National Trapshoot Circuit.
"Paralyzed Veterans is honored and deeply grateful to have a company like Cabela's on board with the PVA Bass Tour and PVA National Trapshoot Circuit," said Randy L. Pleva, Sr., national president of Paralyzed Veterans. "And we would like to thank Cabela's for providing outdoor clothing to the disabled anglers and trapshooters who are competing in our events."
The PVA Bass Tour, a B.A.S.S. sanctioned event, consists of five annual events from Augusta, GA, to Ft. Hood in Belton, TX. The Tour provides fishing opportunities to both disabled and nondisabled anglers. The PVA National Trapshoot Circuit consists of 10 annual events from Myrtle Beach, SC, to San Diego, CA. The Circuit was created to give individuals with disabilities a chance to participate in the recreational and competitive sport of trapshooting. One of the goals of the Circuit is to enable shooters with disabilities and able-bodied shooters to compete as equals.
Programs such as the Bass Tour and Trapshoot Circuit could not take place without the generous support of sponsors such as Cabela's. "Cabela's is proud to partner with the Paralyzed Veterans of America," said Dennis Highby, president and chief executive officer of Cabela's. "We're honored to help give these anglers and trapshooters a chance to compete in the outdoor sports they, and we, enjoy."
