AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

It's the season for giving, but one group of men are giving all year round.

Meet some superheroes who are giving back to a special group of kids here in the CSRA. These men dress up like superheroes and visit patients at the children's hospital. 

They bring toys and gifts for the children - all bought with money out of their own pockets.

If you would like to make a donation to the group, you can contact two of the founding members who work at Bryton Entertainment, LLC in North Augusta by calling 803-341-9435 or by e-mailing info@brytonentertainment.com
