16th Annual Sporting Clays Classic to benefit The Children’s Home
Whether you are a novice or experienced clay shooter, this event surely pulls the trigger on excitement!
We invite you to join honorary chairman, General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, on Saturday, May 22nd for one of the largest Sporting Clays Shoots in the State of Florida. Known as one of the premier shooting events of it’s kind, all participants will enjoy a delicious breakfast, complimentary ammunition from Remington Arms Company, a full round of clays, lunch and an awards ceremony. Shooters can also participate in the infamous card draw, where they can win fabulous prizes like shotguns, vacations, airline tickets and more. New to this year’s event, is the GNAT. This hugely popular shooting experience has been brought all the way from the UK for a special limited engagement associated with this event. GNAT offers a new and exciting challenge for shooting enthusiasts with a target like no other, a radio controlled aircraft, capable of speeds up to 80 mph. It zips by, shows a flash of its belly and pulls up into a steep climb. With each hit, it sets off a pyrotechnic charge and a puff of smoke and keeps flying. Space is limited, so sign up today. GNAT will be offered Saturday, May 22nd and Sunday May 23rd. Thanks to the hard work of the volunteer planning committee and the contributions of loyal participants, this event raises much needed funds for The Children’s Home to continue to serve over 7,000 children and families in the Tampa bay area every year. The Children’s Home was founded in 1892, and is considered the oldest charity on Florida’s West Coast. Through a nationally recognized and accredited Residential Treatment Program, they will help over 120 children each year heal from the trauma of their abuse and neglect. In addition, they help children find a forever family through the recruitment, training and support of foster, adoptive and kinship families in the community. The Children’s Home also strengthens families through a number of initiatives, community programs and Family Support Centers throughout the Tampa Bay area that help stop the cycle of abuse before it starts. The Childrens Home is a local 501 (C)(3) not-for-profit organization serving the Central Florida region.
