Sporting Clays Shooting Tournament & Fishing Rodeo

I would like to personally invite you to join me in supporting 

the Green Beret Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation 

through a sporting clays shooting tournament and a fishing rodeo 

scheduled for May 17th and 18th in Grand Isle, Louisiana. This annual 

event will pit former NFL standouts and other celebrities in a 

one-of-a kind tournament on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.


Joining me will be many of my former teammates, current 

NFL players, local celebrities and military personnel, all here 

to honor the heroes that fight for our freedoms everyday.  

This two-day event kicks off with a sporting clays shooting 

tournament, a Chef’s Dinner featuring some of the best chefs 

from New Orleans, followed by an auction with one-of-a-kind 

items.  All of this is followed the next day by a fishing rodeo, 

fishing awards and a concert.


During my time as a football coach for the United States 

Military Academy at West Point, I had the honor of meeting 

and coaching outstanding students who serve to protect our 

country and allow us the freedom to have events like this.  

The drive to start this organization and give back was fueled 

by a visit to Walter Reed hospital to see a former player 

who was severely injured during his tour.  This event is very 

personal to the entire Black & Gold team, which is driven by 

my entire family, some of which are current active military.


We need your help to make this event successful and have 

no doubt, once you join the unique Black & Gold event family,

 you will be just as invested as we are.   We would love to 

have you on board as a sponsor and are also open to other 

ways you may want to be involved.  Thank you so much for 

taking the time and we look forward to seeing you in May.


Sincerely,

Stan Brock
