Shooting for a Cause: 3rd Annual Naples Charity Clays Fundraiser to Benefit Parkinson’s Foundation

Prepare to take aim and make a difference at the 3rd Annual Naples Charity Clays Fundraiser, set to kick off on Saturday, March 2nd at 8 am at Gulf Coast Clays in Naples, FL. This much-anticipated charity sporting clays event promises a day of camaraderie, competition, and compassion, all aimed at supporting the vital work of the Parkinson’s Foundation.

With 75 rounds of clays on the agenda, participants will have ample opportunity to showcase their marksmanship skills while contributing to a worthy cause. Beyond the thrill of the shooting range, attendees can indulge in a continental breakfast, traverse the grounds in provided golf carts, vie for prestigious awards, and take part in exciting giveaways. Additionally, a silent auction featuring an array of coveted items will add an extra layer of excitement to the day's festivities.

One standout highlight of the event is the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience: 'Win a Weekend with a Porsche!' courtesy of Porsche Naples. This exclusive raffle opportunity promises to add an element of luxury and allure to an already unforgettable day.

The driving force behind this noble initiative is Anthony Dwyer, a Real Estate Agent with The A Team of Compass Real Estate. Inspired by his late brother, Michael, who battled Parkinson’s disease, Dwyer has dedicated himself to organizing this event in honor of his sibling's memory. By rallying the community together, Dwyer aims to raise both awareness and funds to support the Parkinson’s Foundation in its mission to enhance the lives of those affected by the disease and propel research efforts toward finding a cure.

Recent studies backed by the Parkinson’s Foundation underscore the urgency of this cause, revealing a stark reality: nearly 90,000 individuals in the United States are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year, marking a staggering 50% increase from previous estimates. These findings serve as a sobering reminder of the pressing need for continued support and advocacy in the fight against this debilitating condition.

Expressing gratitude for the unwavering support of the community, Dwyer emphasizes the significance of collective action in addressing the challenges posed by Parkinson's disease. "The increase in the number of people diagnosed each year with Parkinson’s disease further validates the importance of this event and motivates me to continue my efforts," he shares.

Individuals can secure their participation for $100 per person, with options to register as individual shooters or as part of a four-person group.
