Hoff round bales

Chad Gilbeck decorated a couple of round bales informing people about the upcoming Hoff Memorial Shoot at the Coon Valley Conservation Club on Saturday, Sept. 9.

The 5th Annual Jonathan Hoff Memorial Shootin’ for a Cure fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Coon Valley Conservation Club.

Shootin’ for a Cure honors the memory of Jonathan Hoff, a spirited 14-year-old boy from Chaseburg, who lost his battle with leukemia on March 23, 2013. Hoff was an eighth-grader at Westby Middle School when he passed away.

Following Hoff’s passing in 2013, family and friends joined forces to ensure that Jonathan’s legacy lived on. A committee oversees the annual “Shootin’ For a Cure” events, which includes the main event held at the Coon Valley Conservation Club, plus entry in numerous area community parades promoting the fall fundraiser.

The 5th annual event runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. It includes a 3D bow course ($10 entry), 22 shoot ($5 entry), and 25 round trap shoot ($10 entry). Additional rounds are $5, plus remember to bring your own ammo. Participants who sign up for both the archery and trap shooting events will get a free “Shootin’ for a Cure” shirt, which will also be sold all day long for $20. Throughout the day there will be great food, refreshments, raffles and a bounce house for the kids.

Since 2013, money raised from annual Jonathan Hoff Memorial Shoot, Shootin’ For a Cure event has donated to many area organizations, supports the Chaseburg American Cancer Society Sole Burner and funds scholarships to graduates of Westby Area High School.
