All proceeds from this event benefit the Boys Home of Virginia. This institution provides for young men in a healthy, supportive environment. The programming is designed to offer a life-changing experience. Caring adult supervision, a welcoming school environment, a stable living situation, and opportunities to explore educational and career options help our students become responsible, well-rounded young men. Boys Home is not an orphanage, or simply a school. They provide food, clothing, shelter, and guidance, almost entirely privately financed by individuals and churches. Time spent at Boys Home is a fresh chance for a young man to mold his character in positive, meaningful ways.
