East Peoria - More than 100 shotgun enthusiasts were found in Spring Bay for a shoot focused on hitting a target goal.
They're raising funds for honor flight, a program allowing United State veterans to travel to our nation's Capitol.
"All the proceeds go to the greater Peoria honor flight so that we can take 31 thousand of the veterans that want to go from the Peoria area," say Greater Peoria Honor Flight Organizers.
The group raised more than five thousand dollars so troops can take a trip honoring their service.
Organizers say it's a long overdue "thank you" to the men and women who sacrificed so much for freedom.
"We plan to do this and continue on until every single veteran from any theater of war is able to go to dc to see the monuments."
The next trip to Washington d-c takes place September 24th.
