Jaycee Classic Raises $3K for Mary's Place

The Jaycee Classic Horseshoe Tournament was a success, allowing the 62 organizations who "pitched in" to raise more than $3,000 for Windsor's Mary's Place.

The Windsor Jaycees recently presented Mary's Place with a check for $3,200 — a donation Jaycees President John Jary contributes to the dozens of Windsor organizations, businesses and individuals who sponsored an historic Jaycee Classic Horseshoe Tournament.

"Pitching in" is what the Jaycees call it — the lending of a hand (financial or otherwise) to support a local cause and make the community stronger.

In total, 62 Windsor civic groups, businesses and individuals "pitched in" to make the 2012 Jaycee Classic a meaningful and memorable event. And rightfully so, as the event marked the last time it would be held on the Mechanic Street horseshoe courts, which are in the process of being moved to Sharshon Park in Wilson.

All proceeds from the Jaycee Classic were donated to Mary's Place, which provides support for grieving children and families, and houses the Carmon Family Resource Center.
