This past Thursday, December 8, The North-Strand All-Stars helped make the holidays a little brighter for 44 underprivileged kids.
Myrtle Beach native and former NFL player Brandon Frye started this effort a few years back in hopes to give back to those in need. Each kid is given a $100 gift card for the Myrtle Beach Target store and sent shopping with some of South Carolina's best football players.
The kids were also treated to lunch with the players. This was a lead-up for this weekend's charity football game presented by the South Carolina Automobile Dealers Association. The North-Strand All-Star football game will be played at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium this Saturday, December 10 at noon.
From SCADA's website:
The mission of the SCADA North-South All-Star Football Game is to create a memorable and rewarding week for the best high school football players and coaches in South Carolina.
The players and coaches enjoy a week of hospitality at Myrtle Beach.
Proceeds from the SCADA North-South All-Star Game go to the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association Scholarship Fund to benefit the children of the state's athletic coaches. Children of coaches in all sports and at all levels of coaching have been recipients of these scholarships.
