2024 Clays for kids

Friends of Children’s Hospital hosted Clays for Kids on Thursday, April 11 at Providence Hill. This year, we expanded the competition to include a morning and afternoon flight. Clays for Kids raised $73,000 for Mississippi’s only dedicated children’s hospital!

This year’s Master Marksman sponsors were Paul Moak Subaru and First South Farm Credit. We’d like to thank our volunteer trappers from the Mississippi National Guard for their help. Participants enjoyed a catered lunch from Burgers Blues Barbecue and a happy hour after the afternoon flight with drinks donated by Southern Beverage Company. We were able to give away gift cards to our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place shooting team winners donated by Amerigo, Char, and Saltine. We also gave away door prizes–a $100 gift card to The Rogue and a clay shoot donated by Providence Hill.

We had an incredible day of shooting and would like to congratulate our teams and overall top shooters on their impressive scores!
