ALL proceeds of the event will benefit local American Red Cross.
When a South Carolinian loses everything a house fire in the middle of the night, the American Red Cross ensures that they will have their basic needs met; they are provided with a place to stay, clothes to wear, infant and childcare needs, and so much more. It is for this heartwarming and selfless work that we at Mid Eastern stand with the American Red Cross in all that they do.
Help us support them for all the vital work they do.
