The Lowndes County Children's Advocacy Center is holding its 15th annual clay shooting tournament Saturday.

The event will be held at Southwind off highway 84 in Brooks County. The cost is $100 dollars per person or $500 dollars per team.

The center's Development Coordinator says this event is vital to the center's success.

"We minimize the trauma to children who have experienced sexual, physical abuse and neglect or are a witness to domestic violence," said Brittny Hammock, Lowndes County Children's Advocacy Center Development Coordinator. "We rely solely on grants and some funding and community support and fundraisers such as this."

The event begins at 8 a.m. If you would like to register, call Hammock at 229-251-1999.
