The Hudson Farm Club will host the annual Harvest Shoot on behalf of Project Self-Sufficiency.Hudson Farm Club

On Tuesday, September 7th, the Harvest Shoot to benefit Project Self-Sufficiency will take place at the Hudson Farm Club in Andover. The event will feature a sporting clay shoot on the 3,800-acre hunting preserve followed by a pig roast. All proceeds will benefit Project Self-Sufficiency, a local non-profit agency which specializes in services for low-income families in Sussex, Warren, and Hunterdon Counties.

The Hudson Farm Club has hosted a Sporting Clay Outing on behalf of Project Self-Sufficiency for years. Like a golf outing, the Sporting Clay Outing allows participants to shoot at an assortment of clay targets available at 20 different locations throughout the sprawling grounds. Each shooting station offers a different presentation of targets, allowing participants to simulate game shooting in a variety of ways. Teams will have the opportunity to take aim at 100 clays over the course of 3 ½ hours.

Event participants will be served a light lunch, take part in the clay shoot throughout the extensive Hudson Farm Club grounds, and then enjoy a pig roast and all the trimmings. Those who wish to attend just the dinner are welcome. The Hudson Farm Club will provide cartridges, ear and eye protection, and instruction and guidance tailored to each participant’s experience level. With 20 different electronic stations, the Hudson Farm Club provides one of the most extensive shooting layouts in the country. While guests are asked to bring their own break-open shotguns, rentals may be arranged for those who don’t own a gun and/or who may have limited shooting experience.

“The Harvest Shoot is an important component of Project Self-Sufficiency’s annual fundraising campaign. We rely on the funds raised with this event to assist low-income families in northwestern New Jersey to attain economic self-sufficiency and family stability,” commented Deborah Berry-Toon, Executive Director of Project Self-Sufficiency. “We are particularly grateful to the membership of the Hudson Farm Club for their continued support of this unique event.”

Project Self-Sufficiency Board of Directors member J.P. Perry has served as event chairperson for four years. “It’s exciting to able to welcome everybody back to the Hudson Farm Club after their absence during this pandemic. This is a great opportunity to get outside, enjoy a beautiful place, and spread the word about Project Self-Sufficiency. We’re looking forward to seeing everybody and having a great day.”

The Sporting Clay Outing is open to all skill levels. Participation in the full day event is $850 per person, or $3,000 for a foursome; tickets for the dinner only are $250 per person. Station sponsorships are available for $400. Lunch and registration will begin promptly at 12:00 p.m., with the outing scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m. Dinner will be served at 5:00 p.m.

All proceeds will benefit Project Self-Sufficiency, a private non-profit community-based organization which has served low-income families in northwestern New Jersey for nearly 35 years. The agency’s mission is to provide a broad spectrum of holistic, respectful, and comprehensive services enabling low-income single parents, teen parents, two-parent families, and displaced homemakers to achieve personal and economic self-sufficiency, family stability, and to improve their lives and the lives of their children.

Both men lived exemplary lives of service to their community, mentoring students and offering advice to young and old. Hunt was a self-employed mason contractor who became a general contractor and partnered with Kowal on numerous projects for decades. Kowal served as construction supervisor in the building of non-profit agency Project Self-Sufficiency’s four-building Newton campus, eventually taking on the role of Maintenance Supervisor at the organization. He oversaw the non-profit agency’s facilities and mentored hundreds of teens and young adults through the New Jersey Youth Corps program for high school dropouts. The Day of Service will offer volunteer opportunities to those who would like to commemorate the pair by giving back to the community; projects are available at various sites in Port Jervis, New York and Sussex County, New Jersey. The $25 registration fee will be earmarked for the creation of a scholarship for New Jersey Youth Corps graduates who exemplify the life of service displayed by Kowal and Hunt.
