Charity Drawings

We are very proud to sponsor Smoky Mountain Service Dogs, a charitable organization which provides service animals to veterans. We conduct a charity drawing on their behalf, giving attendees a chance to win an amazing range of items generously donated by our vendors.


We expect to have tens of thousands of dollars worth of donated items in our charitable drawing. Last year, we raised $25,000 from our charity drawing for the Service Dogs! Click "Learn More" to read more about the wonderful service this charity performs for our veterans.
