Our Mission

The mission of the Midlands Chapter of Blue Star Mother’s to raise awareness and support for our active military, South Carolina’s veterans and their families. We are a 100% volunteer organization that stands ready to answer the call, assist and support those who have served our country.

The Palmetto Patriots’ Ball honors those who have served. It is a celebration of South Carolina’s patriotism as well as a fund raiser to help financially support our chapter’s mission and that of the many organizations to help our active and retired military face their many challenges.
