RICHMOND, RI, – The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences, one of America’s premier luxury resorts and clubs, will host the “greatest day in sporting clays” as it partners with four-time Super Bowl champion and legendary kicker Adam Vinatieri on the inaugural CLAYS 4 CHARITY event, Sunday, Sept. 18.

“We’re so proud to be working with one of the greatest of all time, Adam Vinatieri,” said Paul Mihailides, founder of The Preserve Sporting Club. “We’re calling this the greatest day in sporting clays as this will be an incredible opportunity to come out, have a fun competition, enjoy our beautiful facilities and benefit some great causes.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit charities including Ducks Unlimited, The Wounded Warriors Project, and Arthritis Foundation.

“Obviously I love football, but some of my biggest passions are my family and the great outdoors,” said Vinatieri, the National Football League’s all-time leading scorer. “So, I want to invite everyone to my first annual Clays 4 Charity event at my club, The Preserve in Richmond, Rhode Island. It’s going to be a great event, whether for families or businesses, and the best part is we are going to raise money for charities. I hope to see everyone here!”

The Preserve Sporting Club will stage a full day of activities around the event, centered around sporting clays – a great activity for people of all skill levels. The day will begin with breakfast and lawn games with break out groups taking part in a variety of sporting activities including:

  • Indoor range shooting and trials
  • Equestrian
  • Fly fishing
  • Tours led by ATV/UTV sponsors
