Clinton Apothecary's Annual Contest Raises Funds and Awareness for Local Charities
Sadler-Hughes Apothecary donated a percentage of profits to Thornwell during its fourth annual contest to support local charities. All told, the Clinton pharmacy donated $1083.65 to Thornwell.
“There are many needs here in Laurens County,” said Walter Hughes, owner of Sadler-Hughes Apothecary. “We enjoy supporting the organizations that work to meet these needs while also bringing awareness to these great organizations.”
Sadler-Hughes Apothecary holds the contest during the month of December. Customers choose an organization from a form located inside the pharmacy. The winner is selected by a random drawing on the final day of the contest.
All of the organizations are from Laurens County and include those supported by Sadler-Hughes Apothecary, the United Way of Laurens County, or the Rotary Club. The organizations that participated in this year’s contest include:
- Clinton Coalition for Youth
- Clinton YMCA
- Community Grand
- Hospice of Laurens County
- Open Door Center
- Palmetto Equestrian Therapeutic Riding Program
- United Ministries
- United Way of Laurens County
Thornwell isn’t eligible to participate in the contest for three years since winning the contest this year.
“The contest isn’t a popular vote,” Hughes said. “The purpose is to support and bring awareness to organizations in the community while encouraging those in the community to shop local.”
