The Polk State College Foundation presented the John R. Alexander Memorial Clays Classic April 18, 2019, at Polk Sporting Clays in Haines City.
Previously known as Clays for Courts, the annual event, presented by Regal Lakeland in partnership with The A.D. Morgan Corporation, benefits the Polk State athletics program.
John R. Alexander (1936 – 2018) served on the Polk State College Foundation Board of Directors from 2008 to 2012. He recommended a sporting clays fundraiser to secure new donors and assist students. Since 2012, Clays for Courts has raised almost $90,000 and introduced hundreds of new supporters to the Foundation.
The event began at 9:00 a.m. with a breakfast, followed by a 50-target sporting clays shoot, a steak luncheon, and an awards presentation. Ammunition, meals, and gifts were provided as part of individual and team sponsorship.
