This year, the Upstate came together and raised over $8,600, including 2,932 toys that will be distributed to Upstate children this holiday season. During the event, the Marines set up artillery sites for donors to get a glimpse of how their set up looks during missions. The set up included sandbags walls, camouflage tents and netting, machine guns, humvees, rifles, and suppression trucks. As an added bonus, donors receive complimentary food from various event sponsors including: Dunkin Donuts, Jersey Mike’s, PDQ, and McDonald’s. The event hosted many familiar faces including, the Voice’s Benton Blount, the Clemson Tiger and Rally Cats, and the Reedy River Duck Derby’s mascot, “Shades.”
