Dabo Swinney Joins South Carolina College Football Coaches for Benefit Dinner

July 22, 2010

Former U.S. Air Force Academy head football coach and South Carolina native Fisher DeBerry will host the inaugural South Carolina Coaches for Charity on Thursday, July 29, 2010 at the Embassy Suites in Columbia.

For one evening, South Carolina Coaches for Charity will bring together the top college football coaches from around the state, including Mike Ayers (Wofford), Kevin Higgins (The Citadel), Bobby Lamb (Furman), Buddy Pough (South Carolina State), Steve Spurrier (South Carolina), and Dabo Swinney (Clemson). It will feature a Coctail Reception, Low Country Cuisine, comments from the coaches, highlight videos from each of the schools and plenty of fun.

The night is 100% for charity. Each head coach in attendance will designate a charity that receives a portion of the night’s proceeds. All benefiting charities will have a representative in attendance.

“The football coaches we have in this state are not only great coaches, but terrific people,” said Fisher DeBerry. “For them to take time out of their busy pre-season schedules and come together in the name of charity says a lot about each of them. And for the fans around the state to be able to see all these coaches together in the same room just a month before the season kicks off is a special treat.”

Tables and individual tickets are now on sale for the event, but are limited. The more tickets and tables purchased by fans of each of the schools, the more money that will go towards that particular coach’s charity.
