BEAUMONT Sponsorship opportunities are up for grabs for Lamar Institute of Technology Foundation’s 13th Annual Shoot-Out, a fun sporting clay event that benefits the Foundation and LIT student scholarships.

This year’s Platinum sponsors are ExxonMobil Beaumont, Golden Pass LNG and Provost Umphrey. Teams may sign up for 8 a.m. or noon flights on March 28 at the 1-in-100 Gun Club, Lumberton. Participants vie for prizes, as well as enjoy a day of competition, food and fun.

Last year, the Foundation raised more than $145,000 for scholarships, with 73 teams participating, consisting of 292 individuals; this represented a 4.3 percent increase in participation. One-hundred-twenty volunteers devoted their time and energy to set-up, help during the event and take-down the course.

This year, Foundation Director Mandy Clayton said she hopes to meet a goal of $150,000.
