Thank you to all the supporters of the Wild West Shootout.  A special thanks goes to Dolan Auto Group, the presenting sponsor of the 15th Annual Wild West Shootout.

Dolan Auto Group, a family owned and operated company for nearly four decades, is dedicated to treating their employees and customers like family, all while working to make a difference in the lives of those in our community who need it most. From creating and sustaining community partnerships to supporting children’s education, giving back to the community where we live and do business is at the very core of everything they do.

A few of their favorite ways to give back include the annual Dolan Class Project and supporting local athletics through avenues such as The Wild West Shootout.


Education has always been at the forefront of the philanthropic efforts at Dolan Auto Group. In early 2018 they were named a Partner in Education for our work with schools in the Washoe County School District.

Their most notable education program is the Dolan Class Project, which began seven years ago. The project awards funds to classrooms throughout northern Nevada to support teacher initiatives and student growth. Members of the community vote on projects and requests submitted by students, teachers and administrators to determine the winning classrooms.

They believe these efforts have a lasting effect with students and our community.


Dolan Auto Group also supports Nevada Wolf Pack, Reno Aces, Reno 1868 FC and many of our local school’s sports teams and initiatives. The Dolan family grew up participating in sports and were able to experience the benefits of team and individual sports firsthand. The lessons learned throughout their sports careers are still valuable today and are why they continue to be dedicated to supporting local athletics.

The Wild West Shootout brings their passions together; education, philanthropy and local athletics, which is why they are the presenting sponsor of this year’s tournament!
