Friends of Gorski Challenge Reached Its Goal

WE DID IT! …….We are extremely excited to report that once again the residents of Seabrook Island, Kiawah Island, and Johns Island have surpassed the matching funds donated by the Friends of the Gorski Challenge. We overachieved against the $150,000 goal, with a final total of $152,980. This was a joint fundraiser between Backpack Buddies Seabrook Island and Kiawah Women’s Foundation (Backpack Buddies Kiawah).

The board of Backpack Buddies Seabrook Island would like to thank all those that contributed to this worthy cause. A special thank you goes out to Mike Gorski and his over 75 Special Friends for another successful fundraising campaign.

As a result of your collective generosity, Backpack Buddies of Seabrook Island has funds for another year of operation. With your help, we are able to feed over 385 children every school weekend.

We extend our deep gratitude to Seabrook Island, Kiawah Island, and Johns Island for their great community spirit.

It is all about feeding hungry children on the weekends.  For more information go to
