The Team Podkladek Shootout will be held at Schuyler Park and will feature 14 teams of fifth- and sixth-graders. There will be a basket raffle, 50/50 raffle, fastest shot competition and food available for purchase. All of the monies raised will be donated to Podkladek’s family to help support medical and traveling expenses.
