Virginia Beach Youth Service Club (formerly the Virginia Beach Exchange Club) donated $3,000 to support An Achievable Dream. The donated funds were generated by the YSC’s Annual Spring Pig Roast at Camp Pendleton in which more than $100,000 was raised for local youth-oriented charities. This was the 47th consecutive year for the YSC’s Spring Pig Roast, which has raised more than $1 million for local charities.
