Neighbors FCU Hosting 7th Annual Charity Sporting Clays Tournament April 3rd
The Neighbors Capital Area Foundation is proud to present its 7th annual charity sporting clays tournament, “Clays For A Cause,” on Friday, April 3, 2020, at the Bridgeview Gun Club located at 1365 Northwest Dr., Port Allen, LA 70767. Registration will open at 9:00 AM, and the shoot will commence at 10:00 AM.
Four-person teams will compete in a 13-station, 100-shot course. Shooters may sign up in teams of four, or as an individual. Those interested in participating or sponsoring can do so at neighborsfcu.org/claysforacause. Gun rentals will be available on a limited basis for this event. Complimentary breakfast and lunch will be served for teams and a silent auction will be open throughout the day.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Neighbors Capital Area Foundation’s scholarship program, the Neighbors Way Tuition Assistance Award. The foundation has granted $45,000 in scholarships to local students in 2018 and 2019. In May, the foundation will award $50,000 in scholarships to graduating students from previously raised funds.
“All funds raised from this event go toward the Neighbors Capital Area Foundation, which uses the funds to provide scholarships for local students,” Neighbors President and CEO Steve Webb said. “Education is an investment that always yields dividends. That’s why we are proud to support local students.”
Clays For A Cause is one of three major fund sources for the scholarship program. The second source of funds is the Neighbors Employee Payroll Donation Program, where employees volunteer to have donations withheld from their paychecks.
The third source comes from members with the NFCU Free Cash Back Checking Account. For every purchase, the credit union provides the member with five cents and contributes five cents to the foundation.
