Doing Good for the Community: Watson Civil Supports Davidson Cares Clay Day

January 19, 2023


Davidson Cares Clay Day is an event that is proud to raise money and awareness for worthy causes AND bring Northeast Florida organizations together to strengthen relationships. For the last six years, Watson Civil has generously supported Davidson Cares Clay Day as a sponsor and brings their passion for the community to the event every year.  


John Watson, President and CEO of Watson Civil, first met the Davidsons in 1996 when construction began on World Golf Village. “Whenever I was driving customers around the dirt roads to show off the development, John would always make sure I could get around the equipment and not get stuck. That was the beginning of a wonderful friendship!,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. 


The Davidson Cares Clay Day is an annual staple for Watson Civil Construction. “We look forward to this event each year for a few different reasons. We thoroughly enjoy the chance for fellowship with our industry peers and friends. Clay Day also gives us the ability to have some additional team-building time with employees within our own firm. But most importantly, it provides the opportunity to partner with The Davidson Companies to support some terrific charities and schools in our local community,” shares John Watson. “It has been a lot of fun to watch the support grow each year. We admire The Davidson Companies for establishing Davidson Cares and for bringing the community and supporters together for such wonderful causes that provide services for our local youth. We are excited and looking forward to the next Davidson Cares Clay Day!”


As a horizontal contractor, Watson Civil specializes in large site infrastructure, underground, and road and bridgework. Watson Civil’s clients range from state and local governments to private developers and national home builders. 


“Watson Civil has a remarkable reputation. John Watson has a vibrant energy and handles everything that comes his way head-on,” shares Davidson. “Our partnership with Watson Civil is treasured and we look forward to making more memories at Clay Day for years to come.”


Davidson Cares Clay Day is proud to have the support and sponsorship from Watson Civil as they continue to give back in Northeast Florida. To learn more about Watson Civil Construction visit their website at or call (904) 297-1800.
