Zac Brown is giving back this holiday season.
Last Friday, the country singer held the second annual Evening to Remember fundraiser for his non-profit passion project, Camp Southern Ground, with the benefit raising $1.7 million for the camp, which is located in Fayetteville, GA.
Camp Southern Ground serves children ages 7-17 from various socioeconomic backgrounds,
This year's benefit was attended by stars like Chef Emeril Lagasse, who helped with the dinner menu, and actor Chris Hemsworth. Both stars donated items to the night's live auction, which helped raise money for the camp. Brown's country group, Zac Brown Band, also performed during the event.
"We are staggered by the outpouring of generosity and support of all who took part," the camp shared on Twitter. "This was certainly one for the books!"

Brown and his wife, Shelly, recently shared on Twitter how thankful they are that other families trust the camp to care for their children.
There is no greater expression of trust than to trust someone with your child. We're beyond grateful for all of the families who have trusted Camp Southern Ground with their children. It has been and will continue to be our greatest honor. Thank you. - Zac and Shelly pic.twitter.com/tdvuTWN0aY— Camp Southern Ground (@campsoutherngrd) November 23, 2017
