Old Corner

Todd Anderson Owner of The Old Corner Saloon, 18783 Highway 88 in Clements, gathers with volunteers and members of the Central Valley Mens Club to present a check totaling $14,000 to Victory Village to assist in raising awareness and needed funds in serving our Veterans thanks to the 2020 Charity Shoot Out and the great folks at Camanche Hills Hunting Preserve.

When Todd Anderson owner of The Old Corner Saloon, 18783 Highway 88 in Clements, decided to change his annual fundraiser into a charity shoot out three years ago he wasn’t sure what the response would be.

The addition of a global pandemic might have had Todd worried about this year’s turnout as well, as the Saturday, September 19 event at Camanche Hills Hunting Preserve, 2951 Curran Road in Ione, quickly approached. Fundraisers can be difficult in the easiest of times, so you add COVID-19 in the mix, and well, the big question is just how much can you do.

However, with amazing volunteers, the support of the Central Valley Mens Club and the Camanche Hills Hunting Preserve, not to mention amazing donations from businesses and patrons, any fears Todd may have were quickly replaced by smiles and good times.

“We always hope for a good turn out. Victory Village and the services they provide for Veterans is a great organization and we are so grateful to everyone that comes out to The Old Corner Saloon’s Charity Shoot Out, barbecue and raffle to support the Veterans,” said Todd. “We are an all volunteer organization, with all funds going to where they will help the most.”

This year’s event raised $14,000, significantly up from last year’s total. Over the last three years The Old Corner Saloon Charity Shoot Out has raised over $42,000.

“It’s a testament of community coming together,” said Todd. “The Central Valley Mens Club and Camanche Hills Hunting Preserve made significant donations. Camanche Hills Hunting Preserve allowed us to configure their presentation area to support our band, auction and gun raffle which generated thousands of dollars. Without the Mens Club and Preserve’s support the donation to Victory Village would have been thousands of dollars less.”

A great time was had by all, to say the least.

“During difficult economic times the good people of Amador, San Joaquin and Calaveras counties came out in record numbers to support our veterans,” said Todd. “We were up in participation numbers, and it is very moving and uplifting to see everyone come together when it is needed most.”

For those of you that missed this year’s amazing event, be on the lookout and don’t miss next year’s event — or the cobbler (a not-to-be-missed sensation). Of course, be sure to head out to Camanche Hills Hunting Preserve or check out the Central Valley Mens Club, and if you get a chance stop by The Old Corner Saloon.

“Thank you doesn’t begin to cover all that we accomplished together, but it is a start. So, thanks and we hope to see you all smiling and having an amazing time again soon.”
