Helping Children of the World is the motto of Kiwanis Club International and the Edinburg Kiwanis Club has been doing their part for over 70 years.

The organization is hosting Clays for Kids Skeet Shoot fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 10 starting with 8:00 a.m. registration and a shotgun start at 9:00 a.m. at Trenton & Valverde Road.

The sporting clay tournament will enhance the opportunities of the Kiwanis Club of Edinburg to contribute to several non-profit organizations that benefit children during 2010.

“Our focus over the past few decades is to offer support to groups that offer relief to needy children as well as the special needs of children who have been abused or neglected,” said Robert McGurk, president of the Kiwanis Club of Edinburg. “In addition, we also make a $500.00 scholarship contribution to each high school in Edinburg.”

The Kiwanis Club of Edinburg has partnered with several businesses in the community to make the event a success and raise the funds they need to operate during the coming year. They are asking for sponsorship support in four categories. The Top Shot sponsor in the amount of $750 includes one five person team and a Station Sign. The team sponsorship is $500 and the station sign only is $250. Individual shooters are encouraged to register at $125 and they will be assigned to a team.
