A starburst of A-listers took part in a fun-filled day of World Class eco-friendly sporting clays shooting to benefit Be The Match Marrow Registry City of Hope. The Hollywood Celebrity Sporting Clays Invitational was held on October 9, 2010 in El Monte, CA.

Along with celebrity names like, Colin Farrell, Brian Austin Green, Erik Estrada and Tom Selleck was Sporting Clays National & World Junior Champion, Jon Michael McGrath II, an Eagle Scout from Tulsa, OK.

McGrath was there to lend a hand and share about his experience as a member of the US Olympic Shotgun Team. McGrath had a chance to visit with local Scout Troops at the event, “Boy Scouts allowed me the opportunity to try something new at my very first Boy Scout Summer Camp in Oklahoma when I was 11-years-old.” McGrath picked up a shotgun for the very first time at Scout Camp at Hale Scout Reservation. McGrath said the Scouts at the event reminded him of himself only a few short years ago. McGrath told the Scoutmasters, “Thank you for taking an active part in making a difference in the lives of many boys as an active scout leader.”
