The Broken Clay is an annual clay target shoot directed by Humphrey & Associates Inc. More than 700 people attended the event at the Defender Clay Sports Ranch in Fort Worth. A total of 545 participants shot 100 rounds each on four separate courses. The day ended with an announcement of the winners of each course, the 5 Man Flurry and the Steve Thompson Traveling Trophy. The 14th Annual Broken Clay raised $103,000, lifting total donations from the event above $1 million since it first began in 2005. The proceeds go to Young Life Ministries across North Texas. The Thompson Group and Classic Chevrolet Group won the Steve Thompson Traveling Trophy. Participant Rich Wolfe is shown during the shoot. The Buyers Barricades Group participates in the 5 Man Flurry.
To support the public schools their children attend, employees at Freese and Nichols’ Lubbock office collected donations for the Pirate Pantry, an outreach program of the Lubbock-Cooper school district. Each campus in the district hosts a pantry to provide students and their families with food, clothing, supplies and other basics to make sure students have the best chance of succeeding.
