On behalf of the United Way & Volunteer Services of Greater Yankton, we would like to recognize and thank all those responsible for making our third annual “Shoot from the Heart” fundraiser a success!

Thank you to our valuable corporate sponsors which include, Applied Engineering, Avera Sacred Heart Hospital, CorTrust Bank, Dakota Archery, Eisenbraun & Associates, First Dakota National Bank, First National Bank SD, Johnson, Miner, Marlow, Woodward & Huff, Lewis & Clark Specialty Hospital, Slowey Construction, Subway/Eric Moore, Wal-Mart, Wells Fargo, Yankton Medical Clinic, Yankton Press & Dakotan, and Yankton Sertoma Club. We appreciate your continued support.

“Shoot from the Heart” would not be possible without the efforts of our event Chairpersons, Eric & Chris Moore and Co-Chairpersons, Matt & Abbie Bertsch. Thank you for your time, expertise, and hard work. You went above and beyond to ensure this year's event was the most successful yet, and for that we are grateful.

Thank you to those who donated items for our silent auction and to Steiner's Locker, Don Kettering, Larry Leon, Ken Bertsch, Dakota Archery, Leon Somsen, and Mike Marlow for supplying the wild game. Chef Steve Huff, we always look forward to your wild game appetizers, thank you for sharing your time and culinary skills.

To our local celebrity shooters, Deb Bodenstedt, William “Duke” Ellingson, Donna Freng, Jake Hoffner, Chris Specht and Dr. Scott Torness, your acceptance to draw the bow and aim for the bull's eye is greatly appreciated. Many thanks for your participation and support of the United Way & Volunteer Services.
