Fitch Farms-Galena Plantation announces dates for National “Celebrity” Championship Hunt
The date is set! The 2008 National “Celebrity” Championship Hunt is scheduled for Nov. 13 through 15 (Thursday through Saturday) on the historic grounds of Fitch Farm-Galena Plantation in Holly Springs. It will be an exciting action-packed three days of quail hunting on the 7,000-acre estate dedicated to the preservation of maintaining habitat for wild game.
The 2008 National “Celebrity” Championship Hunt has invited governors and lieutenant governors of Mississippi and Tennessee, as well as our congressmen and senators. In addition, national celebrities from the music, entertainment and athletic industries have been invited to participate. Successful actor and artist Buck Taylor of “Gunsmoke” fame, Tom Lester from the successful comedy series “Green Acres” and Ed Bruce, nationally renowned singer and songwriter will be in attendance for this year’s event.
In 2007, the “Celebrity” Hunt raised over $30,000 for the Governor’s Katrina Relief Effort, the Bird Dog Museum, the Ames Plantation and other worthy charities, according to W.O. Fitch, chairman of the board.
“Mr. Fitch has always believed in honest and fair field trials,” said Sonny Jackson, executive director of the hunt. “That is why he supports the National Championship Trial in Grand Junction along with other top field trials at Ames Plantation.” David Smith, executive director of the Bird Dog Museum, added, “Supporting the Bird Dog Museum has become a passion for Mr. Fitch. He believes all bird dog champions, handlers, owners and club officials should be recognized for their outstanding achievements.”
The 2008 “Celebrity” Hunt will be featured in regional and national media, ranging from local television, cable sporting shows, wildlife magazines and the World Wide Web. With your support, a portion of the proceeds will once again benefit the Governor’s Katrina Relief Effort, the Bird Dog Museum and the Ames Plantation. We are a 501c 3 corporation and all donations are tax deductible.
