(Marengo, OH) - The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) is partnering with the Kids and Clays Foundation to hold a two-day sporting clay charity event at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio.
The event will be held Friday July 20 and Saturday July 21 during SSSF’s Scholastic Clay Target Program National Championships. The event is open to the public.
The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is the nation’s leader in youth development shooting sports programs. The Kids and Clays Foundation supports a series of shooting events across the country with all proceeds benefitting Ronald McDonald House Charities. All proceeds from this special two-day event will help each organization fulfill their mission.
“This event adds more excitement to our National Championships while also benefiting both organizations,” said Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Program Director. “Although our missions are different, in the end, both organizations greatly benefit youth and families. This makes our event a win-win across the board. This partnership is so significant to us that we designated Kids & Clays as our Charity of Choice last year and into the future.”
The Kids & Clays Foundation also sees great value in this partnership.
“We are certainly proud to work with such a highly respected organization that is making a great difference in the future of our shooting sports,” said Doug Jeanneret, Kids & Clays executive director. “This two-day shoot highlights the work of both our organizations while at the same time raising badly needed funds. And as important, it is a really fun event for all participants.”
Top finishers in this registered event will be recognized with trophies.
All participants will be entered into a large drawing with over $10,000 in prizes including firearms, outdoor gear, gas grills and other great merchandise from companies such as Henry, Beretta, Browning, Lansky, Winchester Ammunition, Briley, Champion, Camp Chef, Alps Outdoorz, Hodgdon Powder Co., Girls with Guns, Otis Technology, and Allen.
A portion of the proceeds, through the Kids & Clays Foundation, benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities, who provide housing and other help to tens of thousands of critically ill children and their families across the country each year.
Proceeds will also benefit the SCTP’s scholarship program providing assistance to graduating high school seniors continuing their education in college. Scholarship applications are available on the SSSF’s website.
