The money raised will go back into this community to help those in need.

“Camden Jaycee is a non-profit organization that raises money at the festival to buy toys and food for disadvantaged families in Lugoff, Camden, Kershaw County, and those areas,” says Wilson.

This is a Battle with a Purpose:

The festival is hosted by the Camden Jaycees, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of the most disadvantaged citizens in Kershaw County by providing meals and toys to families during the Christmas season.
