Grand Strand Young Professionals is celebrating Christmas in July with several fundraisers benefiting Substitutes for Santa - an annual event held in partnership with SOS Care that provides a magical Christmas experience to 150 children in Horry County.

During the event, the children are first taken to Fun Warehouse for games and pizza, then they are taken to Walmart to buy presents. Each child also is sent home with a bag of necessary household items and toiletries. Sponsorships and fundraisers make the event possible.

Sponsorships start at $250 and are available now for the 2024 event. View sponsorship benefits and levels by visiting GrandStrandYoungProfessionals.com.
