Champions for Youth

2016: This year’s Champions For Youth Tribute honored Mr. Buddy Brand on August 30 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 Performance Foodservice/IFH and Sodexo at Carolinas Hospital System, 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!
