Officials from The Honor Project, a Columbia-based non-profit, gathered Monday night at J's Corner on Rosewood Drive to present two local charities with a donation of more than $10,000 each.
This year's recipients were Camp Cole and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officer Association. The money was collected through the Honor Project's charity golf tournament, Wild Mayhem. Proceeds raised from the event are donated to local charities with the goal of community improvement.
"This year was the sixth annual Wild Mayhem golf tournament and we are proud to raise funds to support Camp Cole and SCLEOA. With the Honor Project, we endeavor to better our community, " said Honor Project co-founder Ed McDonell.
The Honor Project was created for the purpose of making grants to various charities to improve communities and empower citizens. The non-profit has collectively donated more than $68,500 to a variety of organizations and/or their charitable foundations.
J's Corner also contributed a portion of all sales during the event Monday to the two charities.
