Inspired to Give: MasterCraft Builder Group Supports Davidson Cares Clay Day

November 18, 2021

 | 

The Davidson Cares Clay Day has been a successful event from every standpoint. MasterCraft Builder Group is to thank for the inspiration behind Clay Day as it’s modeled after MasterCraft Builder Groups’ very own charity shoot called Clays for a Cause. 

 

“When I asked Chris Shee, Founder and CEO of MasterCraft Builder Group, about his charity shoot, he generously shared all the details we needed to begin our shoot,” shared Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. “Since our first Davidson Cares Clay Day in 2016, MasterCraft has supported us and been sponsors every year.”

 

With deep roots in Northeast Florida, MasterCraft is an organization passionate about serving the community and continuously puts its neighbors first. “MasterCraft is a huge supporter of Davidson Cares because of the local factor.  We prefer to keep our giving to organizations like St. Augustine Youth Services and Investing in Kids because they help children who live in “our backyard”.  There is a great sense of community in St. Johns County and it’s events like Clay Day that help our local kids who need it most,” shares President of MasterCraft Builder Group, Brad Shee. 

 

MasterCraft takes pride in not only building great semi-custom homes in St. Johns County but strives to take care of the people in the community. In addition to Clays for a Cause, MasterCraft also organized Concerts for a Cause, a concert series at the Tringali Barn, and built the Home from the Heart for Builders Care last year. They donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to local charities. 

 

Davidson Cares Clay Day is proud to have the support and sponsorship from MasterCraft Builder Group as they continue to support local charities. To learn more about MasterCraft Builder Group, visit their website at mastercraftbuildergroup.com or call (904) 295-1604.
