The University of South Carolina has announced the postponement of "A Celebration of Dawn Staley featuring Robin Roberts" due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts.
The event was originally scheduled to take place on April 27 at the Pastides Alumni Center in Columbia. USC plans to reschedule the event for a future date.
This annual fundraising event benefits the Dawn Staley Champions Fund, which helps support scholarships for first-generation, economically disadvantaged, underrepresented students and student-athletes at USC by providing financial aid for tuition and educational expenses, creating equal opportunities for success, principles Coach Staley has championed.
Several 2023 event sponsors have pledged their support of the Dawn Staley Champions Fund through this event. Event sponsorships will be upheld for the rescheduled event. Sponsors include the following: Platinum Sponsor – BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina; Gold Sponsor – Aflac; Silver Sponsors – Grace Outdoor Advertising, Michelin, Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, NMPD/Be the Match, and Truist; and Bronze Sponsors – atkins law, Canal Insurance, Chernoff Newman, Colonial Life, First Citizens Bank, Founders Federal Credit Union, SouthState Bank, USC Board of Trustees, USC Development Foundation and USC Educational Foundation.
