The Gorski Friends Challenge

THE FINAL RESULT OF THE 2022 CHALLENGE WAS MORE THAN $150,000!!!!!!

Mike Gorski, Owner of Island Transportation, launched this Challenge 5 years ago to help raise funds for Backpack Buddies’ programs on Seabrook and Kiawah Islands. These two organizations are both 501(c)(3) nonprofits whose mission is to feed local school children on the weekends. As food insecurity continues these agencies are serving approximately 630 students weekly on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands. 

 

Each year the Challenge has proven to be very successful! Many thanks to all for their contributions!
