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

“We’ve partnered with Young Plantations for over 30 years and this partnership has been our primary fundraising effort each year,” stated club president, Belinda Portnall. “Youngs 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 Youngs retail price and our members will deliver your order,” added Portnall.

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, and pecan pies, $15. Contact Diane Junis at (803) 873-0254, or by email at to connect to a Rotarian who can deliver your order.
