Charity Dove Hunt Raises $6,500 for Scholarships

The fifth annual Freddie Lee Chandler Memorial Dove Hunt raised about $6,500 from its annual fundraising event at the end of September. The fund provides scholarships for select high school graduates of Throckmorton High School.

The annual fundraiser is led by Younger Partners’ Jerry Averyt, Silver Oak Commercial Realty’s Russ Webb and Don Crocker to honor their late friend, Freddie Lee Chandler. Freddie was from Throckmorton and the scholarship is a way to honor him. He was an avid outdoorsman, so it only makes sense to host a dove hunt as the fundraiser, Jerry says.

About 125 hunters participated in the event, which included a visit with Throckmorton native and beloved former Dallas Cowboy and TCU alum, Bob Lily and his wife, Ann, and their son, Mark.
