Alumni give back at annual Cookout for Kids

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

It was good food for a good cause Saturday in Columbia.

Cookout for Kids, a BBQ fundraiser for the Epworth Children's Home, had great food and more.

The 6th annual event allows people to see the campus, while raising money to support tutoring, healthcare, and counseling for the children.

"We put our children through college if that's a wish that they have," said Mitzie Schafer with Epworth Children's Home. "The folks putting this on are alumni, so they lived here, they grew up here, and they came back and it's a good example for the kids who live here now."

Epworth Children's Home provides care for children age 4 to 18.

The children come to the home as a result of abuse, neglect, or significant loss.
