Get ready to take aim, Lee Association for Remarkable Citizens (LARC) will host the second annual “Aiming for Ability” Clay Shooting Tournament on Friday, June 19, 2020 outdoors at Sarasota Trap Skeet & Clays, 3445 Rustic Road, Nokomis. All proceeds will benefit LARC’s innovative program – LAB: Learn, Achieve, Become. Last year’s event raised more than $14,000 for the organization that works to empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Registration begins at 8:45 a.m., a mandatory safety meeting is at 9:30 a.m., and at 10:00 a.m. shooters will head out to take their best shot in support of people with disabilities. Lunch and awards will immediately follow. The entry fee is $600 per foursome or $150 per person and includes lunch, ear protection, 100 targets, four boxes of ammunition and golf cart. Participants must be 18 years old. Shotgun rentals are available for an additional fee. Trophies will be awarded to 1st through 3rd place teams.
“This is an outdoor venue and we are taking all necessary precautions for social distancing, cleaning and disinfecting,” said Angela Katz, LARC Development Director. “Our new LAB program offers an experiential learning environment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. LAB transforms traditional program areas into spaces for innovation, vocation, demonstration and learning. Five Labs focus on skills that maximize independence and employment success.”
