Comments Off on More than $15k raised for Carolina Children’s Home 2015 campaign

More than $15,000 has been raised for the 2015 Carolina Children’s Home campaign thus far.  With more than 50 “cards” left to work (past donors to contact) that number is expected to rise significantly.

This is the 48th year the Columbia Sertoma Club has engaged in the campaign and more than $3.8 million has been raised.

Club President Joe Azar is proud of the progress that has been made and looks forward to the dollars being put to work.  “Sertoma has a long history of supporting this cause, 48 years actually, and we’re going to do everything possible to keep it going.  The real benefit is seeing the help it provides.”

Anyone interested in contributing can contact Sertoma Chairman John Adams at

Back by popular demand, the annual Sertoma Tailgate Fundraiser, sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover Columbia, will take place Saturday, September 19 for the University of South Carolina vs. Georgia football game. The event will be all-you-can-eat and will feature BBQ from celebrity chefs, farm-to-table sides from local farms, beer, wine and liquor. The cost is just $30/person or $50/couple. All proceeds will benefit local charities in the Midlands.

Sertoma Vice President and Event Chair Todd Lewis says “the Tailgate Fundraiser is an annual tailgate party before and during the Gamecock’s largest/most important away game each year. It includes a corn hole tournament, music, eating and drinking before and during the game, and watching the game while engaging in the same activities. It’s always a good time and it’s for a great cause.”
