The Spring Valley Rotary Club is holding its annual Young Plantations Pecan sale through late December. Through the annual fundraiser, the club provides $40,000 in support to local Columbia non-profits including Harvest Hope Food Bank, Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, Transitions, the Lourie Center and many others and provides scholarships to graduating high school seniors from Spring Valley and Ridgeview High Schools.

“We’ve partnered with Young Plantations for over 30 years and this partnership has been our primary fundraising effort each year,” club president, Stevie Johnson said. “Young’s does not have a Columbia retailer this holiday season so the best way to get Young’s delicious pecans is by contacting a Spring Valley Rotarian. Our prices are slightly lower than Young’s retail price and our members will deliver your order.”

Available products include: a 1 pound bag of pecan halves, $11; honey crisp pecans, $15; chocolate butter toffee pecans, $15; butter roasted and salted cashews, $19; the Favorite Foursome (four varieties), $20; chocolate pecan halves, $19; sugar-free chocolate pecan halves, $31; butter roasted and salted pecans, $20; the mini duet (chocolate and praline pecans), $23 and the Seventh Heaven,(seven varieties) $31. Contact Diane Junis at 803-873-0254, or by email at [email protected] to connect to a Rotarian who can deliver your order.
