Harrison family


 Teams Raleigh Brawl and Sand Diggers supports Harrison McKinion, who is battling cancer.   Together they’re contributing to their numerous medical bills and have raised over $6,600 for St Baldrick’s in honor of Harrison.


 Jeff Chaffin raises over $10,000 in his individual fund raising campaign.  There was a great incentive to shave his beard.



Support St Baldricks with a small donation on the St. Baldricks/ Growler Site or for your Favorite Team.
