On Saturday, June 11, 2016 we attended the OCPD/OCFD Pumper Pull Fundraising event held at The Barn in Sanford to benefit firefighter/paramedic, Caroline Dorton.
We have worked with event organizer, Kristi Campbell of Hooked for a Cure in the past and all we can say is she is a miracle worker. We realize she has helpers, but Kristi is the utmost professional when it comes to organizing stellar events.
The pictures speak for all she accomplished. Just look at the massive turnout. First responders from all over Florida attended, along with bag pipe players, vendors, and lots of people offering their support. The grand total raised was $31,126.88. Kristi, you're an inspiration and a God-send to the community and we appreciate all that you do to make a positive difference.
Be part of the Hollowpoint Apparel Team at the OCFD & OCPD Poker Run & Pumper Pull Charity Event for Firefighter/Paramedic, Caroline Dorton.
This event will be held at The Barn in Sanford, FL on Saturday, June 11th. Multiple 10-person teams will compete for trophies and bragging rights for who can pull the pumper the farthest in the least amount of time. Registration begins at 3pm, with the pumper pull event starting at 4pm.
We are in search of 10 people, men and women, of all ages (must be at least 18) to join the Hollowpoint Apparel team. The cost is $20 per person, with all proceeds donated to Caroline.
Trophies will be awarded for:
1st Place Male Team
1st Place Female Team
1st Place Co-ed Team
Best Team Costumes
There will be several vendors (including Hollowpoint Apparel), entertainment, food & drinks, raffles and silent auction. This event is organized by Kristi Campbell of Hooked for a Cure and is certain to be an amazing fundraiser offering fun for the entire family.
If you have what it takes to pull a fire engine, fill out the contact form below. Upon receipt of your information, we will receive instructions for remitting your entry fee. Team members will receive a complimentary Hollowpoint Apparel hat OR tee shirt which you will wear during the competition.
LET'S PULL TOGETHER TO HELP CAROLINE & HER FAMILY!
If you aren't familiar with Caroline's story, you can read about it here and watch the updated video of her discussing her injuries here.
In a nutshell, Caroline was critically injured while helping a woman who had been stabbed by her husband. Caroline was having dinner with her fiance and a friend at Chili's Grill & Bar on Lake Mary Boulevard when she witnessed a woman being dragged across the parking lot.
Without hesitation, she went to help and the woman's husband ran over Caroline and his wife with his car. The wife was pronounced dead at the scene. The husband went on to kill his two children (ages 1 and 4), then shot and killed himself.
Caroline is a mother of three children and has been with the Orange City Fire Department since 2009. She has a long road of recovery ahead, but by joining forces we can all make a small difference in her life!
We survived Daytona Bike Week and had a great time vending at Pub 44 in New Smyrna Beach. First and foremost, we’d like to thank everyone at Pub 44 for their support and hospitality.
We greatly appreciate the owners, Kevin, Scott & Nick, allowing us to host our daily 22 Kill push-up challenges and all the help from Jeremy Miller of Awake Late & DJ Josh Boggs, in orchestrating our events in between transition of bands.
The Hollowpoint Shot
We kicked off Bike Week with a Hollowpoint Apparel Pre-Bash Party at Pub 44 on Wednesday, March 2. DJ Cool Kat donated his time and services to provide great music for our group and lead our first push-up challenge. Pub bartender, Diane, aka Crush, concocted a special Hollowpoint Shot for us with a portion of proceeds donated to 22Kill.com.
live on-air at fox 35 Orlando
On Friday, March 5 we visited Fox 35 Orlando for a live on-air challenge with Jayme King and John Brown. Our brand manager, Kathy Browning, and DJ Cool Kat went to the studio to represent Hollowpoint Apparel and talk about the important work 22Kill.com is doing to help our Veterans.
Check out the video here. These guys cranked them out in no time!
Goat, glow rilla & the disgruntled clown
It's not every day that we get to hang out with celebrities, but throughout the week we enjoyed the company of Goat from the reality show, Full Throttle Saloon, our very own GlowRilla mascot, and The Disgruntled Clown.
Each of these individuals went out of their way to help us rally the crowd and promote our fundraiser and challenges.
We really enjoyed hanging out with them and appreciate all their help and support!
DJ Josh Boggs loaned us Glow Rilla; our amazing pink gorilla mascot! Glow Rilla, aka Thomas donned a Hollowpoint Apparel T-shirt and wore it proudly as he posed for photos with the crowd and engaged in push-ups.
Our volunteer drill instructors
We’d also like to thank the local business owners who took time out of their day to volunteer as drill instructors. They include:
Jon & Heather Hinson of Hinson Photography
Michele Boyer, Keyes Realtor at BuyNSBHomes.com
Lacey Homan, U.S. Army Reserve
Rob Maxwell of Maxwell’s Fitness Programs
Nick Griffin of Full Contact Ministries

We’d also like to thank Jon and Heather Hinson of Hinson Photography for leading a push-up challenge and providing us with professional photographs that fully captured the essence of Bike Week. View their gallery here.
And, of course, we extend our gratitude to Brent Eite of Focal Point Videography for donating his time to film the big event on Friday night. Although he wasn’t able to use the drone due to substantial radio frequency interference, Brent delivered this fabulous video.
Focal point videography #22Kill push-up challenge with boston at pub 44
The team at Pub 44 was amazing to work with and very supportive of our cause. Everyone pulled together and worked hard to ensure guests and vendors had a good time. The number of people who gathered for the concerts and to enjoy the Bike Week festivities was overwhelming at times. I can’t imagine the pressure on the staff to stay on top of their game, but they gave their all and we applaud them!
Last, but not least, thank you to everyone who stopped by the Hollowpoint Apparel booth and purchased our tees, tanks, hats, headbands and coozies. It is very rewarding to see so many people wearing our clothing and telling their friends and families about us.
If you weren’t able to make it to Bike Week, you can still order your favorite Hollowpoint Apparel via our online store. Stay tuned as we unveil more new designs and participate in upcoming outdoor enthusiast events.
We extend our gratitude to Brent Eite and Dustin Hope of Focal Point Videography for donating their time and talent to create this powerful video showcasing Hollowpoint Apparel Push-Up Challenge in support of 22Kill.com.
