For the past 45 years, high schools from around the Lowcountry have come together to kick off football season. This annual tradition not only signals the beginning of Friday night lights in the Lowcountry, but also benefits local nonprofits to continue their missions with 100% of the proceeds going to local charities and schools. Windwood Farm Family Services, Eagle Harbor Ranch, Trinity Worldwide Outreach Ministries, Camp Sertoma, Camp Happy Days, Boy Scouts of America, Ronald McDonald House, West Ashley JROTC, SCHSL, participating schools and other charities were all recipients of last year’s Sertoma Football Classic. More than five million dollars has been donated to local charities since the inception of the Sertoma Classic.
Although the spotlight shines on the excitement of the games, the true importance is the mission of the Sertoma (SERvice TO MAnkind) Club of Charleston who has given back to the Lowcountry in countless ways for over165 years. The Sertoma Club is always seeking new ideas and fresh thinking. For information on how to be a part of this great organization visit them online <http://charlestonsertoma.com/membership/>.
