On September 3, 2022, the community gathered at Grainger Dealerships for a Labor Day cookout and raffle drawing for the Grainger Companies Car Giveaway. Bill Grainger and the Grainger Companies generously donated the choice of a 2022 Honda CR-V or 2022 Nissan Rogue to be raffled off with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the families of fallen first responders served by the 200 Club.
“Every day when we get up, we know that someone has to take care of us and protect us to make this a safe country, and the first responders are what do that, and I’m proud to be associated with them,” said Grainger.
Angela McDuffie, widow of Captain Earnest “Moe” McDuffie of the Hinesville Fire Department, drew the winner of the raffle – Steve Kellam. Thank you to all who participated in the raffle and to those who helped make this event possible – Bill Grainger and his team at Grainger Companies, Sheriff John T. Wilcher and the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.
Over $92,000 was raised through this fundraiser, providing life-changing support to the families of those who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. We cannot thank everyone enough for their support of the 200 Club and our mission to “Care For Those Who Care For Us”.
