Twenty-four high school teams participate in the Classic and, in 2015, four 8-man high school teams were invited as well as six powder puff teams from a league sponsor by the North Charleston Police Department. As part of the Classic, the agency started the cheerleader football throw competition with cash prizes to the winners. All proceeds raised by Sertoma are donated to local charities helping less fortunate kids.
Fisher House Charleston
Studies have shown that having family close by and involved in the recovery process greatly benefits patients battling illness or injury. This involvement directly affects the length of time that a patient spends in the hospital and the occurrences of readmission.
Due to Charleston’s focus on tourism, temporary lodging for families of patients battling illness or injury can often be difficult or even impossible to afford. The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center serves more than 4,500 veteran inpatients annually. The Fisher House is committed to providing temporary accommodations to veterans and their families while the veteran is receiving medical attention at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center.
