Texas International Produce Association Hosts Skeet Shoot PAC Fundraiser; Dante Galeazzi and Mark Santos Discuss



MISSION, TX - Industry gatherings are one thing we here at AndNowUKnow always look forward to. Last week, the Texas International Produce Association (TIPA) brought members of the fresh produce sector together for its Pull-for-PAC Skeet Shoot fundraiser, hosting a sold-out shoot with every team spot filled.

Dante Galeazzi, President and Chief Executive Officer, Texas International Produce Association“Our annual Skeet Shoot PAC-fundraiser was the brainchild of Mark Santos of Santos International and Scott Fletcher of Allen Lund, two of our event sponsors,” said Dante Galeazzi, President and Chief Executive Officer of TIPA. “Now in our sixth year, this event has become more than just about the PAC. It has become a great opportunity for the members to get together, have fun, and enjoy much-needed comradery as we all recover from the impacts of the pandemic.”

The annual event is critical to supporting the endeavors of the association’s activities in Washington, DC, and Austin, Texas, according to a press release.

This year, 20 teams registered and more than 100 people were treated to a great BBQ dinner and drinks to kick the night off.

Mark Santos, Chair, TIPA TexPAC Committee and Partner, Santos International US Custom Brokers“Anyone who’s been in the industry for a few years understands the importance government plays for fresh produce. Whether it is international produce shipments crossing the US-MX border, or it is labor policies governing the domestic workforce, there are issues at the local, state, and federal levels that the association must be engaged and active on. In order to do that, we rely on events like last night’s Pull for PAC Skeet Shoot, and judging from the great turnout, our members understand that [is] important as well,” commented Mark Santos, partner at Santos International US Custom Brokers and Chair of the TIPA TexPAC Committee. “Yesterday was a great event, with a phenomenal turnout. Over 20 teams of shooters, more than 100 people, all having a great time. It felt like our best PAC event yet.”

Cheers to yet another successful Pull-for-PAC Skeet Shoot fundraiser!
