  • Participants and teams can drop off their donations safely at our “donation drop off” drive-through and pick up T-shirts without leaving their cars.
  • Limited quantities of Miracle Mile merchandise will be available for purchase.
  • Raffle tickets will be on sale, and the drawing will be broadcast live. Prizes range from a Club Car golf car to pink sapphire jewelry from Windsor Jewelers.
