We are excited to announce our special guests for this event. Senator Vincent Sheheen and Representative Terry Alexander have graciously agreed to be roasted by a celebrity panel of roasters to raise funds for our critical mission to improve the lives of men, women, and children living with sickle cell disease in South Carolina.
The evening will begin with a reception from 6:00pm until 7:00pm. The celebrity roast will begin at 7:00pm. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served throughout the event.
All proceeds will go directly to the Foundation to deliver services to men, women, and children suffering from sickle cell disease, as well as to provide community education and genetic screening to help prevent future generations from inheriting this group of life-threatening diseases.
