The Kids & Clays Foundation 2015 National Sweepstakes has ended with winners drawn at the recent National Sporting Clays Championship. Proceeds from the sweepstakes and a series of shooting events benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities.

I never expected to win a prize in this contest. I was just happy to support the Kids & Clays Foundation and Ronald McDonald Houses through my contribution, said Greg Peters, winner of the Blaser shotgun. This is a huge bonus, and I am very grateful to Kids & Clays as well as Blaser for this really exquisite shotgun.
The contest runs annually, generally kicking off with a promotion at the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in January. The sweepstakes is made available to all Ronald McDonald Houses who host shooting events supported by the Kids & Clays Foundation. Those sites will number 20 in 15 states for 2016. The Houses receive all proceeds.
The annual sweepstakes provides vital funds to Ronald McDonald Houses to help critically ill children and their families, said Bill Keyser, president of the Kids & Clays Foundation. It is only possible with the great support of national sponsors who are key to the sweeps success. I would encourage all who want to make a difference to participate in the sweepstakes.
The Kids & Clays Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit association and is the charity of choice for the National Skeet Shooting Association, the National Sporting Clays Association, and the Amateur Trap Association.
