Shrine Club Seafood Festival set Nov. 14
SoVaNow.com / November 07, 2012The Shrine Club of South Hill is planning its 30th annual Seafood Festival on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the Golden Leaf Warehouse. For the past 30 years, local Shriner Jimmie Keith Crowder has been presenting town officials with complimentary tickets for all their help with the festival and other events hosted by the Shriners and numerous other organizations throughout the year.
The Shriners organization was founded in 1872 to support charities and philanthropies. In 1920, they founded their own philanthropy and since that time have established Shriners Hospitals, which has grown into an international network. They concentrate on specialties such as orthopedic care and research. Some problems commonly treated at Shriners Hospitals are scoliosis, clubfoot and related deformities, brittle bone disease, Spina Bifida, skeletal growth abnormalities, neuromuscular disorders, hand problems, Rickets, congenital hip problems, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, leg length discrepancies and orthopedic problems associated with cerebral Palsy back problems, limb deficiencies and more.
The Shriners expanded their scope in 1980 when they opened a Philadelphia hospital, one of the nation’s first spinal cord injury rehabilitation centers for children. Today, Shriners throughout Virginia are sponsoring children at the Shriners Hospitals in Greenville, South Carolina, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Cincinnati, Ohio, Boston, Massachusetts and Montréal, Canada. Forty years after opening its first hospital, Shriners recognized a need for treating children who were severely burned. They opened three Shriners Hospitals in the mid 1960s specifically to treat burn victims.
It takes $2 million a day to operate the hospitals and all money is raised by Shriners through various fundraisers.
