TX Hunters, Abilene charity anticipate start of 2016 dove hunting season

By: Melissa Valdez

Children’s Miracle Network and Hendrick Medical Center are welcoming dove hunting season with an annual fundraiser, the Legend Dove Hunt.

"It's very important because this benefit actually equals out to a quarter of our proceeds for the Henrick Children's Hospital every year,” said Melinda Blay, a coordinator with Children’s Miracle Network.

The Legend Dove Hunt is a two-day event on Sept. 9 and 10. It will consist of group hunts, a Saturday dinner and live auctions. The proceeds help pay for necessary medical equipment, NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) renovations and upgrades.

"We're actually surpassing our sponsorship dollars this year, at least to last year’s numbers,” Blay said. “We're expecting a very large turn-out this year."

Blay also says the group is looking for silent and live auction items for their event dinner.

If you’d like to participate in the Legend Dove Hunt or want to donate auction items, you can contact Blay at mblay@ehendrick.org or call 325-670-6557.
