Shoot the Moon Fundraiser Event

Fall is upon us, and that crisp air we’ve been getting means Halloween is fast approaching! Once again Velocity Online is keeping things festive by sponsoring Keep Tallahassee Beautiful’s fundraising event: Shoot the Moon. On October 28th, Killearn Country Club will be home to spooky sand traps and haunted holes. Velocity Online is proud to be a sponsor for such an amazing cause, which has done so much for our community.

Keep Tallahassee Beautiful is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping the unique Tallahassee community as beautiful as it can be. The volunteer-based effort focuses on reducing litter and waste, as well as promoting recycling. They have reduced litter in Tallahassee and Leon County by 40%, and they are focused on making a difference on a global scale by acting on a local one.

Here is a short list of Keep Tallahassee Beautiful’s accomplishments since they began in 1992:

  • Over 2,200 cleanups
  • Over 64,000 volunteers organized at cleanups
  • Over 1,850 trees planted
  • Over 650 graffiti sites abated
  • Over 150 sites beautified
  • Over 1100 tons of trash collected
  • Keeping our community beautiful and litter free by managing the Adopt a Street Program since 2010

Shoot the Moon is one of many ways we can help Keep Tallahassee Beautiful going. Velocity Online is dedicated to giving back to the community, so we’re very excited to be a part of this event. If you’d like to register for the event, whether that be as a sponsor or participant, you can find the registration form here. We encourage everyone to join us on October 28th for Shoot the Moon at the Killearn Country Club, and show your support for a great cause!
