Valentine's Day is approaching, and McCormick is lucky enough to have a unique way to express love to not only lovers, but also to children in need, too.   The Huguenote Barbershop Quartet will celebrate Valentine’s Day for the 10th consecutive year with “Singing Valentine’s”.

The Huguenote Barbershop Quartet will present a bouquet of flowers and serenade a sweetheart for a donation to the McCormick Children's Home, a win-win situation if there ever was one.  

"The quartet began the Valentine promotion as a way to raise money for the Children’s Home," said Huguenote Chuck Neilson.  "Since initiating this annual volunteer effort in 2003, the quartet has raised more than $14,000 for support of the home’s operating expenses.   All of the money raised by this endeavor is returned to the home."  

The McCormick Children’s Home is a private, non-profit organization that provides emergency shelter for abused, neglected or abandoned children from all regions of the state. It’s located on the John De La Howe campus in McCormick County.  Each year, the facility cares for approximately 200 youngsters ranging in age from birth to 17 years old.  

It receives funding from the state Department of Social Services, but relies, in large part, on fund-raising events, donations and grants to meet its expenses.  Many Savannah Lakes Village residents are volunteering their time to help the home meet the needs of its children.  “Singing Valentines” is the way the quartet is volunteering it’s time to support this worthy organization. 

The Huguenote quartet, residents of Savannah Lakes Village and the surrounding area in McCormick, have begun accepting reservations to perform the “Singing Valentines” for 2013.  You may order a “Singing Valentine” for the McCormick area by calling the quartet hot line at 864-391-5006.  In the Greenwood and Abbeville area, call 864-602-9769.  

"Valentine’s Day is on Thursday  this year, and the Quartet is planning delivery of Valentines on Wednesday , Feb. 13, as well," Neilson said.   "Monday will be primarily for workplaces, schools, businesses, and restaurants and private individuals in the McCormick and Greenwood area.  Thursday, Feb. 14, “Valentine’s Day” will focus on private individuals, party events, as well as other locations like those mentioned above. If your group is planning a Valentine Party for the weekend, the quartet can accommodate your plan with an entertainment package to suit the need.

The Valentines will be delivered from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.  Call to reserve a time slot that will best suit your needs.  Each recipient will receive a flower, a Valentine card from the sender and a selection of special 'Valentine' love songs suitable for the occasion.  All donations collected for this effort are tax deductable and are returned 100 percent to the McCormick Children’s Home.

"Gals, don’t forget your male friend or husband," said Neilson.  "They receive a chocolate rose instead of flowers, a card from you and you both receive the love songs which set off the day.
