Exchange Club puts on charity event

Posted: June 24, 2014 - 11:16pm  |  Updated: June 25, 2014 - 1:56am

 

The Exchange Club of Columbia County is offering a night of live music and prizes to help prevent child abuse.

The event begins at 7 p.m. Friday at Savannah Rapids Pavilion.

All proceeds benefit Child Enrichment Inc. Founded in 1977, the organization focuses on helping abused, abandoned and neglected children.

“The national mission of Exchange is the prevention of child abuse,” said Darrell Byrd, president-elect of the Columbia County club. “Our agency is aligned with Child Enrichment. They are always our number one recipient of funds.”

The event features live music from Ruskin Yeargain, of the bands Impulse Ride and Jar, a cash bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres from Silver Palm Catering.

The main event is a reverse raffle, which operates differently from a traditional raffle.

Ticket holders don’t want to hear their name called until the last ticket is called at 10 p.m.

“The last ticket drawn wins $5,000,” Byrd said. “The last ticket drawn wins.”

Byrd said the last few ticket holders can form a pact to split the winnings.

Tickets cost $100 each and include admission for two people.
