More than 300 people spent the day at Southwind Sporting for the Children's Advocacy Center's 12th Annual Sporting Clay Shoot.
There were more than 200 shooters made up of 40 teams of five.
Everyone was raising awareness to help victims of domestic and sexual abuse and to make sure they get the treatment they need.
"Eighty-two percent of the children we served last year were sexually abused.," said Brenda Hodges, the director of the Children's Advocacy Center. "And about 10 percent were witnesses of domestic violence. And so we're really seeing a rise in that."
The Children's Advocacy Center says Lowndes County has cut $25,000 in funding for the center.
