ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida (November 3, 2023) – Davidson Cares hosted its wildly successful Jim Davidson’s Annual Clay Day fundraiser on Thursday, October 19, at Jacksonville Clay Target Sports. This charity event boomed back for its eighth year, raising $150,000 for local organizations that assist youth and Veterans in the community. This year’s event brings Davidson Cares’ charitable fundraising total to almost three-quarters of a million dollars. The event was made possible by title sponsors The Hutson Companies, Iventure, Providence Homes, and Riverside Homes, 12-gauge sponsors Bird Dog, Matthews Design Group, Vallencourt, MasterCraft Builder Group, Watson Civil, ECS, Bozard Ford, Sherwin Williams, and many more.

“Our incredible shooters and sponsors really helped us turn it out this year,” shares Sherry Davidson, President of Davidson Cares. “I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished over the last eight years. Each Clay Day gets better and better. This year, our fundraising efforts exceeded our expectations enough that we were able to assist an eighth organization. The non-profits that we support are really the lifeblood of our community. They are the helpers our most precious populations turn to in times of need. How amazing that we’re able to show them support in return?!”

The Jim Davidson Annual Clay Day fundraiser awarded donations to eight local charities: Hope is Restored, which helps survivors of human trafficking; Port in a Storm, a homeless shelter for youth 16-24 years old; St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS), which serves at-risk youth; Homes for Hope, which works locally to end poverty globally by building homes; Take Stock in Children received funding for three college scholarships; Five Star Veterans Center is a 41-bed facility assisting Veterans; Builders Care, a nonprofit that restores accessibility by building ramps; and Community Hospice & Palliative Care, a medical center that provides end-of-life care. Davidson Cares Clay Day was renamed Jim Davidson’s Annual Clay Day after the recent passing of the Davidson family’s patriarch.

“It was really important to us that we select charities that honored Jim’s memory,” says Davidson. “Every single one of these organizations represents a cause that was very meaningful to us. He truly wanted to improve this community and make it a better place for everyone. That’s what we’ll continue to do through Davidson Cares and in Jim’s name.”
