Not only has Cook served his community, but he has also won several Emmy Awards for his work in meteorology and was recently inducted into the Georgia Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
Camp Happy Days’ purpose is to provide free year-round programs, services and support to children battling cancer and their families. Camp Happy Days is excited about this new event that is designed to engage and educate more people on pediatric cancer and the families dealing with this devastating disease. All proceeds from the event will directly go to Camp Happy Days so that they can continue to provide aid and resources to these young and deserving beneficiaries.
