Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club gifted $134,000 to thirty-four non-profit organizations Wednesday evening, November 1, 2017, at the Turtle Point Clubhouse on Kiawah Island. This annual event recognizes local charities providing outreach programs on our islands in the categories of Community Service Hunger, Community Service Health, Child Abuse Prevention, Youth & Education and Americanism.
Bill Nelson, exchange member and master of ceremonies, highlighted each organization’s dedication and activities serving our local youth and/or adults. One hundred twenty members, spouses and guests attending celebrated the efforts of these non-profits that make a positive impact on the lives of many islanders.
The Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Chapter extends gratitude and thanks to the merchants and service providers who advertise in its annual Handbook/Directory, the Club’s primary fundraising program. In addition, the funds available for grants was increased significantly by tax-deductible donations to the Exchange Club of Kiawah-Seabrook Foundation.
