Giving from the Heart – The Landmark Foundation Supports Davidson Cares Clay Day

January 27, 2023

 | 

Since 2016, the Landmark Family has been a gracious and generous sponsor of Davidson Cares Clay Day at the highest level. Through Landmark Title’s nonprofit division, The Landmark Foundation proudly supports Davidson Cares. “As a public charity ourselves, The Landmark Foundation enjoys collaborating with like-minded individuals to help raise money for a fellow non-profit that does so much for the community,” shares David Heekin, President of Landmark Title. 

 

“Landmark Title has blossomed as a successful title company and The Landmark Foundation has graciously and impressively served and supported the community,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. “I truly admire The Landmark Foundation for consistently sponsoring two Builders Care ramp builds each month. The commitment to fund and arrange volunteers is amazing.”

 

The common desire to serve the community makes the Davidson and Landmark families a natural fit. “We have been a sponsor for Clay Day for several years and the main reason being Sherry Davidson. She is an amazing woman with a big heart who truly puts others first and cares about her community. Davidson Cares’ focus on children and education is a worthy cause and something that is easy for us to get behind and support,” continues Heekin. 

 

Over the years, the Landmark team has graciously shared their knowledge and resources with the Davidsons. During the recession, David Heekin provided invaluable insight regarding short real estate sales. Heekin lead training and served on panels to help educate others in the real estate industry about short sale transactions. In 2013, when William Li joined the Landmark Title team as Vice President, Landmark Title rented executive suites in the Davidson Realty office because their business was expanding so rapidly. Li would frequently join the Davidson Realty team for sales meetings, training sessions, and would always make himself available as a resource to Davidson Realty agents.

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!”

United to Serve: MasterCraft Builder Group Supports Davidson Cares Clay Day

January 12, 2023

 | 

The overwhelming success of Davidson Cares Clay Day is thanks to the hard work of countless individuals and organizations. However, MasterCraft Builder Group is truly owed a great deal of gratitude as their Clays for a Cause event was the inspiration for Sherry Davidson, President of Davidson Realty, to start a similar event of her own. 

 

“MasterCraft’s Clays for a Cause event was so fruitful and brought together an amazing group of people for a great cause. When I decided I wanted to do something similar, I reached out to Chris Shee, Founder and CEO of MasterCraft Builder Group, and he graciously provided me with the insight to create an event that was our own,” shares Sherry. 

 

“Davidson Cares’ Clay Day is a wonderful day of uniting a community of friends to shoot a round of sporting clays while supporting worthy, local charitable causes. It’s not just about raising money, but also increasing awareness of needs that are right under our nose,” shares Chris Shee. “Our companies both share the same mission of being charitable and our sporting clay shoots are one of the ways we practice this. While the events have their own unique formats, charities, and themes, three things remain the same: love, grace for the needy, and glory to Him.”

 

Davidson Realty and MasterCraft Builder Group have bonded over their passion for giving back to the community and providing excellent service to their clients. MasterCraft Builder Group is a semi-custom builder and community developer that specializes in thoughtful designs and exceptional quality to meet the needs of the modern family by providing luxury living at an affordable price. MasterCraft Builder Group has homes in RiverTown, TrailMark, SilverLeaf, and Madeira.

 

Over the past year, these two organizations have supported one another in various ways. In addition to continuing to sponsor Clays for a Cause, Davidson Realty was a major sponsor for MasterCraft’s Concerts for a Cause which benefits Builders Care, an organization that both Sherry and Chris serve on as board members. Davidson Realty also sponsored the 1st Hometown Hero’s Ride, an event that MasterCraft helped organize to benefit Veterans and First Responders. MasterCraft was recently involved with the reconstruction for Port in the Storm, which inspired Davidson Realty to add the organization as one of the Clay Day beneficiaries. 

 

“Seeing Port in the Storm as one of the beneficiaries of Clay Day this year was really exciting. MasterCraft has supported their organization for several years including doing two almost complete renovations due to emergency disasters. This shelter for struggling or homeless teenagers and young adults provides a safe place to sleep. Helping them is what we are called to do. Port in the Storm is a wonderful mission and the fact that Davidson Cares chose this local cause as part of their 2022 event is just terrific,” continues Chris. 

 

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.

Leigh Insurance 

In addition to the sport shooting event during Davidson Cares Clay Day, a popular and exciting element is the raffle items. This year, Leigh Insurance generously sponsored the gun raffle and cigar table. This raffle item was a new addition this year, but one that caught the eye of participants and those interested in supporting the event. Leigh Insurance also provided each shooter with a quality cigar which made the event extra special. “Clay Day is a fun day that we look forward to each fall and a great opportunity to give back to the community. Leigh Insurance enjoys being a sponsor knowing the contributions are going to organizations doing incredible work. We are honored to participate and be a sponsor for Davidson Cares Clay Day each year,” shares Sally Jaudon, Business Manager at Leigh Insurance Agency. 

 

Chris Austin

Many of the Davidson Cares Clay Day sponsors have truly become an extension of the Davidson Realty family, and Chris Austin of First Coast Mortgage Funding is no exception. “Chris Austin is a lender our team works with very closely. Chris has an office in our building and participates in many of our team activities like lunch and learns, pizza and personal notes, birthday celebrations, and our trivia night. Chris also recently joined our team in our ramp build with Builders Care,” shares Davidson. Chris Austin graciously sponsored the wonderful lunch for Clay Day and assisted with set up for the event. “Being able to sponsor the lunch for Clay Day was the least I could do to help the great charities Davidson Cares continues to support. To be a part of an event like this one that at the end of the day gives so much money to organizations that will help the people who need it most is an honor and a privilege,” share Chris Austin.
