The competition begins at 3 p.m., and combined tickets for the clay shoot and the evening banquet are $100 per person or $50 for the barbecue banquet and live beginning at 7 p.m. For tickets or more information, contact Staci Smith, executive director of the John de la Howe School Foundation, at (864) 391-0406.
“The Foundation exists solely to support the students, the staff and the mission of the South Carolina Governor’s School for Agriculture,” Mrs. Smith said. “The Foundation is excited to host our first fund-raising event this fall, and the proceeds will have two focus areas. One, to support our high school shotgun team, and secondly to support our environmental and natural resources program.”
