We researched and vetted a local non-profit for all of the gold, booty, and riches raised from the event to benefit, and this year we’re proud to support the Old Dominion Firefighters Burn Foundation whose programs support firefighter and civilian burn survivors, foster burn education and prevention, and sponsor the Central Virginia Burn Camp, a free and fun summer camp for young burn survivors.
