2018 Camp Aranzazu Clays Classic

Holiday Bells & Shells - Houston

Presented by Gordy & Sons Outfitters


Our second annual Camp Aranzazu Clays Classic – Holiday Bells and Shells Presented by Gordy & Sons Outfitters exceeded our expectations and surpassed our team's goals for the event! We are grateful to all who helped make this happen!

We were thrilled to have 176 people in attendance which allowed 44 teams to participate in our second annual Holiday Bells & Shells event. We had a delicious lunch provided by Ragin' Cajun and heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks following the clay shoot. Our auction items and raffle items including a stay at Rosemary Beach, a dove hunting trip in Argentina, hunting rifles, and more were a huge hit! Thanks to the generosity and support of our donors, the 2018 Holiday Bells & Shells raised approximately $240,000 and will enable Camp Aranzazu to underwrite a week at camp for about 225 children and adults with special needs and chronic illnesses.

Mark your calendar for Tuesday, December 10, 2019—Holiday Bells & Shells 2019!
