Something very near and dear to my heart is a Very Special Fundraiser for one of our local soldier who recently loss both legs in Afghanistan. Now So Go Airsoft is having the Jesse McCart Fundraiser this weekend in hopes of helping him and his family out with all their expenses. So Go Airsoft has two local locations, Ozark and Springfield, MO. Jesse McCart Benefit So Go Airsoft Events will be held over 2 days. Sat. Sept. 29th 6-11pm (our regular Night CQB Event) In Ozark Sat. Sept. 29th 5-9pm (Slightly earlier time) in Springfield. BOTH OF THESE EVENTS WILL BE $25 TO ATTEND and Sunday Sept. 30 in Springfield only Day Event 1-6 $20. Yes your $25 let's you play at both locations. You don't have to pay another $25 to play if you decide to change to the other. Also, they will also be having a raffle for 2 Airsoft Guns $1 per ticket. One given away at each location. (Where you buy your tickets is what drawing you will be eligible for. Yes you can buy tickets at both locations) I know Jesse and his family have a long hard road ahead of them. But they continue to show us their Love and Gratitude for what everybody is doing for them around the area. We want Jesse to keep his head in the game of getting better and taking care of his family. So please come out and help this family even if you don't want to play or go for a raffle. You can still leave a donation for Jesse and his family.
