In addition to the fabulous weather yesterday, the 3rd annual Bohicket Marina Backpack Buddies Chili Cookoff was an overwhelming success! A heartfelt thank you to all who attended, volunteered, donated, baked, and supported the fundraiser.
A special thank you to all the individuals as well as businesses that cooked 5 gallons of chili and participated to support our programs.
Thanks to the hard work of Todd Gerhardt, over $18,400.00 was raised. The Gorski challenge (which matched donations over the past 2 weeks) added an additional $8600.00, bringing the grand total to over $27,000.00 raised for Backpack Buddies and The Kiawah Women’s Foundation, all supporting local, hungry children on the weekends.
