Grand Strand brunch benefits charities

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Mother's Day brunch is tradition in many households. One Grand Strand group helped make that tradition a little bit sweeter.

Part of the proceeds from brunch at Myrtle Beach Elks Lodge 1771 went to charity.

Organizers say it is a great way to enjoy time with family and friends while giving a little back.

Bruce Morgan is the house committee chairman for the lodge, and he says everyone is happy to help out.

"Everybody donates," he said. "We have 50/50 raffles for the Mothers later on this afternoon it's a good benefit plus it helps the lodge."

The brunch benefited charities like Alzheimer research, Veteran's benefits and children's charities.
