Champions for Youth

2017: This year’s Champions For Youth Tribute honored Mr. Rob Colones on August 31 at The Waters Building in downtown Florence. Thanks to the continued support of many companies and individuals in the community, and the delicious refreshments provided by Aramark at McLeod Health, we raised more than $100,000 to support youth programming throughout the Pee Dee. We appreciate the generous support of ALL of the sponsors listed below!
