Greenville, S.C. | April 18, 2017 –Today, SANDLAPPER Securities, LLC (“SANDLAPPER”) announced helping raise over $33,000 for Center for Developmental Services (“CDS”) at the 2017 Cornhole Derby and $12,000 for T.E.A.R.S (True Evangelism Always Requires Sacrifice) during its annual conference.
The 2nd Annual Cornhole Derby to benefit the CCDS took place on Saturday, April 1 at the Trailblazer Park in Travelers Rest. SANDLAPPER served as the presenting sponsor for the second year. CDS is the largest multi-disciplinary treatment facility in the Upstate for children with disabilities and developmental delays. In one location, children receive services in therapy, diagnosis, school placement, day care needs for the medically fragile, and a family support network. The partnership is comprised of Clarity; Family Connection of SC; the Preschool Special Education Program of Greenville County Schools; KidVentures of Thrive Upstate (formerly the Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Board); and four programs of the Greenville Health System: Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, Kidnetics, The Wonder Center, and Prosthetics and Orthotics. CDS and its partners serve over 6,000 children and their families each year on property donated by the First Presbyterian Church at 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.
“It is a true honor for SANDLAPPER to once again partner with the local community to benefit the compassionate work of CDS,” said Trevor Gordon, SANDLAPPER Founder and CEO, board member and past Board Chair of CDS. “Because of CDS, Upstate children with disabilities, along with their families, have the resources, attention and care to enable them to reach their full potential.”
In addition, during the 6th Annual SANDLAPPER Securities Sales Conference, SANDLAPPER raised $12,000 for T.E.A.R.S (True Evangelism Always Requires Sacrifice) to support children in the Dominican Republic. The T.E.A.R.S. mission is to plant and enable churches to achieve community, interdependency, intimacy and accountability by becoming gospel-centered, disciple-producing bodies that are proactive in their communities and autonomous in function. Our main focus must be building Christ-centered relationships, discipleship, evangelism, and training believers in the discovery and development of their gifts, talents and vision for the enhancement of their communities and the advancing of the Kingdom of God.
“It has become a great and lasting tradition at our national meeting to raise much needed capital for various organizations,” states Gordon. “We were excited to support T.E.A.R.S. and their efforts in the Dominican. Our fund raising is going directly to building a much-needed high school to benefit very at-risk children, and I am proud of our team and sponsors of the conference for their contribution to the cause. Since we began our ‘conference philanthropy’ six years ago, we have collectively raised around $50,000 for several worthy charitable organizations throughout the community.”
