The funds raised at these events are distributed to four primary focus entities including Breast Cancer Research, Call Me MISTER, The Family Effect and LIFE Programs at the University of Alabama and Clemson University which provide specific programming for children and young adults with learning disabilities and special learning needs.

In addition the foundation provides grants to organizations throughout the Upstate with similar objectives.
