Batson-Cook Construction recently hosted their annual "Clays For A Cause" charity clay shoot.
The event March 2 at Cherokee Rose Sporting Resort in Griffin raised $52,000 for The Children's Village and directly benefits the boys and girls who live in the cottages at Christian City in Union City in south Fulton County.
A gift of $52,000 was also given to the American Cancer Society.
The children living in the cottages at Christian City come from situations of abuse, abandonment, and neglect. More than 1,000 children have called Christian City "home" since they first opened their doors in February, 1965.
