For the 10th year in a row, the Una Caja Dove Hunt was held in San Patricio County Wednesday to raise money for HALO-Flight.

The event falls on the day that HALO-Flight celebrates 30 years of service.

Una Caja translates to "one box," and it turns out that one box can end up saving a life, because proceeds from that single box of 410 shotgun shells go to HALO-Flight.

According to the nonprofit, it costs about $20,000 per emergency flight, and those costs add up. That's why the 10th anniversary of the annual dove hunt is more important than ever.

In total, this year's hunt is expected to raise $70,000 for HALO-Flight.
