The Exchange Club of Charleston gave grants to 66 Charities last week. Proceeds are from the 2011 Coastal Carolina Fair. This is the Exchange Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year. The 2011 fair raised $622,674.
The Exchange Club of Charleston, chartered on April 15, 1924, is dedicated to serving the community through support of Americanism, youth activities, scholarships, community programs and its national project: the prevention of child abuse.
