The Texas International Produce Association held its annual Pull-for-PAC Skeet Shoot fundraiser on Nov. 16.

Critical to supporting the endeavors of the association’s activities in Washington D.C. and Austin, Texas, this event has continued to grow every year. This year, TIPA was able to host a sold-out shoot. Twenty teams registered and more than 100 people attended a barbecue dinner to begin the event.

“Our annual Skeet Shoot PAC-fundraiser was the brainchild of Mark Santos of Santos International and Scott Fletcher of Allen Lund, two of our event sponsors,” said Dante Galeazzi, president and CEO.

“Now in our sixth year, this event has become more than just about the PAC. It has become a great opportunity for the members to get together, have fun and enjoy much needed comradery as we all recover from the impacts of the pandemic.”

Founded in 1942, the Texas International Produce Association promotes, advocates, educates and represents the $8 billion in fresh produce that is either grown in the state or calls Texas the first point of U.S.-arrival for North American distribution.

“Anyone who’s been in the industry for a few years understands the importance government plays for fresh produce. Whether it is international produce shipments crossing the US-MX border, or it is labor policies governing the domestic workforce, there are issues at the local, state and federal levels that the association must be engaged and active on,” said Mark Santos, partner at Santos International U.S. Custom brokers and chair of the TIPA TexPAC committee.

“In order to do that, we rely on events like last night’s Pull for PAC Skeet Shoot, and judging from the great turnout – our members understand that important as well. Yesterday was a great event, with a phenomenal turn-out. More than 20 teams of shooters, more than 100 people, all having a great time. It felt like our best PAC event yet.”
