Benelli has announced the third annual Benelli USA Invitational, a team-based sporting clays competition that raises money for Freedom Hunters. The shoot will be held on Sept. 15, 2017, at Prince George's County Trap and Skeet in Glen Dale, Maryland.

"We are very excited to be hosting The Benelli Invitational for the third year. It is great to see so many of our industry partners at this event and hope to see even more this year. The day combines great food, terrific auction items, friendly competition on the clays course and, ultimately, vital funds to help Freedom Hunters," said Benelli USA Vice President of Brand Marketing Tim Joseph. "We are proud to support the work that Freedom Hunters does to honor our active duty military, combat veterans and their families. We invite those in the industry to join us in the cause by attending the event, making donations or providing a sponsorship."

In its first two years, the Benelli USA Invitational has raised more than $57,000 for Freedom Hunters. For every dollar donated to Freedom Hunters, 98 percent is used directly to take veterans and military families into the outdoors.

Companies and individuals are encouraged to support Freedom Hunters by attending the event as an individual or as part of a four-person team. Benelli is also looking for donors for the event's silent auction and raffle. Sponsorship stations are also available.

Attendees can register for the Benelli Invitational here.

"I cannot find the proper words to express our appreciation to the team at Benelli USA for hosting the third Benelli USA Invitational. Funds from the Invitational have allowed Freedom Hunters the opportunity to honor active-duty military personnel, military families and combat veterans by taking them on outdoor adventures," said Freedom Hunters Founder and Program Director Anthony Pace. "The Benelli USA Invitational is a one-day event, but the fine people at Benelli USA work throughout the year to honor our nation's finest."
