The Columbia Sertoma Club is proud to announce it has now raised more than $19,000 as part of the 2014 Carolina Children’s Home campaign. The campaign still has weeks to go and much more is expected to be generated.

Ernie Lawhorne, charter member of the Sertoma Club and former Gamecock football coach, started the campaign back in 1968. Since that time the club has raised more than $3.6 million dollars for the Children’s Home.
