"This event is one of the highlights of the year for me and all our coaches who have had the opportunity to participate," said men's basketball Head Coach Oliver Purnell, who is in charge of the event for the third straight year. "It gives us the opportunity to get in the Christmas spirit with kids and their families in our community. We have to extend major thanks to Wal-Mart for making this all possible and for their generosity."

Champion Coach has donated a bus and driver to transport the coaches and children Wedensday from Clemson to Wal-Mart of Central. The children will receive gift cards and will be given food by Wal-Mart. In addition, a wrapping station will be set up for all gifts purchased by the children.
