The Charleston Youth Company

The Charleston Youth Company

The Charleston Youth Company is a Non-Profit Performing Arts Company for Students from 1st-12th grad The Charleston Youth Company, Inc. was founded in 1978 by Chuck Long.

It grew from the seeds planted by parents who wanted a program where their children could come together weekly, learn about the arts, and experience performing while using their creativity. Forty-two years later there are 5 companies today-Senior, Junior, Sophomore, Freshman and Technical-keeping the dream alive! Our mission is to be the highest quality performing arts company of the Greater Charl

Nothing says movie night quite like popcorn. So make sure to take your movie night to the next level and get the very best popcorn!

Double Good is award winning popcorn (yes, that is a thing, and we are looking into how to qualify to judge such awards) that is designed to support communities and kids. The entire company is designed around the idea that fundraising for youth (be it sports, school, drama or community events) should be safe and fun!

Less than 20 hours left to get in on the action, and spice up your movie night with flavors like In Queso Fire!

What is so special about this award winning Double Good popcorn? EVERYONE loves it! Just check out how hard we had to try to keep Gleason and Roux out of all this yumminess.

So don't wait to order because it is all gone as of 8 am tomorrow morning.

Did you know that even if you don't like popcorn (if such a person even exists) you can still participate? You can make a popcorn donation that will be delivered to First Responders with no shipping costs, and the total still adds to our fundraiser!

P.S. - Gleason says he will also accept any popcorn donations too!
