Par for the Clot Awareness and Fundraising Charity Golf @ The Preserve at Verdae
Apr 26 @ 8:30 am – 5:30 pm

The 2018 “Par for the Clot” fundraiser was a huge success! We are so grateful to all our partners in giving, our volunteers and teams! The funds raised last year helped to provide education and support to our 353 families. Proceeds funded our advocacy initiatives protecting access to care and quality treatment, and many supportive services; including 21 national education and college scholarships, 35 compassionate care requests, funding for NHF research and national support initiatives, educational camps for over 65 families and teens, and we were able to provide comfort to our many families affected by bleeding disorders. As South Carolina’s leading resource for children and families affected by bleeding disorders, HSC maintains close relationships with our community, providing them the opportunity to network with other families experiencing the same situations, seeking guidance and emotional support, for an often anxiety-ridden and frightening diagnosis. We support our families from the initial diagnosis throughout their lifetime. We serve the entire state of South Carolina and are a tight-knit community family.

We invite you all to join us again this year, and if this is your first time with the Par for the Clot Tournament, we know you will have a fun time in joining us for this worthy cause.

NDMS Exercise @ Spartanburg County Community Emergency Response Team
May 7 @ 7:00 am – 5:00 pm

The NDMS exercise is a unique opportunity for our members to offer their assistance in a multi-agency exercise headed up by the US Army. Since many of our members also have disaster animal response training, ham radio, litter bearer training, and can patient act with the best of them, this volunteer opportunity is ideal for many. We hope some of our members, who are afforded the time to take off work for one day, will consider doing so. As always, thanks for all you do.

Rebuild Anderson @ The Bleckley Inn
May 16 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

REBUILD ANDERSON is a free, awareness-raising event that serves as a fundraiser, volunteer recruitment event, and cultivation event. Rebuild Anderson will provide lunch, a panel, and a homeowner spotlight.

Last year, Rebuild Upstate served 31 homeowners in Anderson County. We hope to provide home repairs to at least 35 Anderson community members this year. Support raised at this event will be a critical part of raising the funds and social capital we need to serve more of our low-income neighbors in Anderson County. As of 12/31/18, there were 194 Anderson County homeowners waiting for assistance.

Rebuild Upstate makes a life-changing impact on homeowners served, just like Mrs. Thompson. Mrs. Thompson has experienced the generosity of Rebuild Upstate supporters first-hand. In her home, she raised grandchildren. She experienced love and loss. She spends time with her family. Recently, Mrs. Thompson began experiencing pain when using her stairs to go outside. The pain made it difficult to get outside to play with her nephew.

Now, thanks to Rebuild Upstate volunteers, Mrs. Thompson can get in and out of her home without pain. The ramp provided her with more than she expected. She gained freedom, independence, and safety. Mrs. Thompson even has more energy now because she goes outside more often. Most importantly, she can continue to be with her family as she ages.

Mrs. Thompson is one of the thirty-one homeowners served in Anderson County last year.

Thank you to our event sponsors!
