Event Spotlight: Clays for Kids 2018

This year, Marriott Vacations Worldwide joins CMN Hospitals in celebrating 35 years of incredible partnership, all in support of local sick and injured kids.

CMN Hospitals was founded 35 years ago in 1983, and Marriott International was the first corporate partner to join the organizations efforts to raise money for local children’s hospitals. In the early days of the partnership, Marriott provided free rooms for celebrity guests appearing on the organization’s telethon. 

Marriott Vacation Club resorts have continued this legacy and support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since Marriott Vacations Worldwide became an independent, public company in 2011.

Throughout 2018, we are highlighting Marriott Vacation Clubs and their incredible associates who go above and beyond to support local children’s hospitals. This month we celebrate the associates of the Lakeland Corporate Office for their annual Clays for Kids tournament, held on Friday, November 2. Held at FishHawk Range in Lithia, FL, the day included a round of Sporting Clays, a form of clay pigeon/skeet shooting and often described as ‘golf with a shotgun’.

With 10 brand new teams this year, the event was an overwhelming success, raising over $50,000 for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
