We, Holy City Syndicate, host a March Madness bracket competition with a reward for the best bracket. Participation in the tournament requires a nominal donation to a wonderful charity called the Lowcountry Orphan Relief. Entrance into the tournament will have to wait until March of 2018 when the next tournament comes around. Last tournament we raised almost $1000, and we hope to improve on it next year!
Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Inc. (LOR) is a non-profit organization that provides goods and services to children who have been abused or neglected. They work directly with other non-profits, schools, foster parents, and government agencies to identify the individual needs of these and other children in severe situations. They intervene at critical junctures in the lives of these children, with products and services that provide a strong, positive impact. Since 2006, they have clothed over 22,000 children in the Tri-County area.
Every February, Holy City Syndicate comes together in Marion Square to feed as many hungry people as possible. Being cold and hungry in February is not something we support, so when it's time for the big game to come around, look for us out in Marion Square so you can get some hot soup on us!
Since 1990, young people have been leading the charge and inspiring others to collect dollars and food weeks leading up to the Big Game. Teaming up with local partners, these groups give 100% of donations to local charities, changing the nation's largest weekend of football into the largest weekend of caring.
