My Coins Count
Bring your loose change and see how small contributions from many people add up to make a big difference in the lives of those in need. Thanks to local matching donors, we are able to double most of the dollars raised in this year’s My Coins Count. Proceeds will be used for water projects around the world. 

Basketball Tournament
New at the 2019 Black Swamp Benefit will be a 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament.
