Thank You Sponsors, Donors, Volunteers & Friends!

We are very proud of our Texas Ranger Classic Company "B" Sporting Clay Tournament!

Together, we raised $90,000.00 and hosted 110 shooters! These generous donations will afford TRAF the ability to not only aid the children of active duty Texas Rangers to seek higher education through scholarships, but to also provide emergency assistance to both retired and active duty Texas Rangers and their families. TRAF also helps to preserve and perpetuate the history and heritage of the Texas Rangers through its relationship with the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum located in Waco, Texas.
