On Saturday, the first-ever "Shooting for Ta-Tas" was held.

The event was a friendly competition of skeet shooting.

14 teams, of no more than 5 people, shot on a course made for skeet shooters.

After the competition, everyone attended an award ceremony, and was also treated to a steak meal.

While competitors had a good time, one was there in support of her family.

"Really to help them because I mean, to see the changes that Breast Cancer has made in their lives, I just want to do anything I can for them," said 17-year-old Emily Fulton.

Fulton is the State's 1st place Senior Girl Skeet Shooter.

People at the event enjoyed it.

Kelly Matkins is the director at the Susan G. Komen foundation.

Matkins says, "The American Cancer Society estimates that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. So while, we're having a good time and we're having fun out here, we always do remember the lives who have been touched by Breast Cancer."

The event was hosted by Susan G. Komen and Partners and Wellness.

The majority of proceeds will stay local to help women with free mammograms.
