Lake Toxaway Charities has been a viable part of Lake Toxaway since 1975 when seasonal residents Ben and JoJo Walton began hosting an annual golf tournament to raise money for the local Toxaway EMS/Fire Department. Subsequent donations helped build the Toxaway Community Center and continued supporting the volunteer fire department, which at that time received no county funds.
As of its fiscal year-end 2018, LTC has donated over $2 million to 43 Transylvania County charities. This is a testament to the generosity of Lake Toxaway Estates residents, who care deeply about the greater community in which they live, whether seasonally or full-time. Lake Toxaway Charities continues to make a positive impact on the County’s charitable and non-profit organizations and the people who live and work among us. July 2oth marks the date of the 2019 Annual Gala and Sports Day. Chip Brown visited with me to talk about this year’s event. Take a minute to listen.
