Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Ellis County has been selected as the beneficiary of Magnablend’s second annual Clays for a Cause sporting clays tournament.  

On Friday, April 25, dozens of individuals and companies will gather at the Alpine Shooting Range in Fort Worth to raise funds and have a little fun while making a difference in the life of a child.

“Magnablend is proud of our partnership with CASA and the impact they have on the community,” said Scott Pendery, Magnablend President. “The work CASA and their volunteers do to ensure kids and parents stay connected makes our community a better place to live, work and raise families.”

CASA provides programs and a voice for the protection, care and welfare of all children in need. Money raised from the tournament will go to recruiting and training volunteers to speak up for children in court.

“We’re so excited that Magnablend has selected CASA as the beneficiary of Clays for a Cause,” said Rhodie Rawls, CASA of Ellis County Executive Director. “We appreciate Magnablend’s recognition of the work that we do and their support ensures that we can continue to serve every child in Ellis County that needs us to be their voice.”

Clays for a Cause is scheduled for April 25 at Alpine Shooting Range in Fort Worth. The event begins in the morning with registration at 8 a.m. and a shotgun start at 9 a.m.  After the flight, lunch will be served and prizes awarded to the flight winners. A raffle and silent auction will also be held.  The raffle includes two guns valued at $1,000 or more each. Tickets for the drawing are $20 or $100 for six.

The cost for a four-person team is $1,000 or $250 for an individual shooter.  Sponsorship opportunities are also available.  Information and registration are available online at Magnablend.com and casaofelliscounty.org.

This is the second year for the sporting clays tournament, sponsored and organized by Magnablend.  Last year, the tournament raised more than $33,000 to assist the Nevil family following an auto accident that left 12-year-old Lauren Nevil in critical condition and in need of extensive medical and rehabilitation services.
