Fetter Health Care Network will welcome CNN political commentator and former South Carolina Rep. Bakari Sellers as the keynote speaker for the Charleston-based nonprofit’s 50th Anniversary Luncheon Celebration. The luncheon will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24 from noon to 2 p.m. at The College Center at Trident Technical College in North Charleston, S.C. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage in a question and answer session with Sellers following lunch.
Aisha Tyler, a news reporter with WCSC Live 5 News, will moderate the event. Tickets are open to the public. Student tickets are $35. General public tickets are $65. VIP tables are available for $1000 and include an exclusive meet and greet with Sellers before the event.
“I am honored to join the Charleston community in celebrating the impact that Fetter Health Care Network has had throughout its 50 years of service,” said Sellers. “Fetter is a vital resource to the overall health care of the region and has enriched the lives of men, women and children for generations.”
Known internationally for his powerful viewpoint and commanding presence on CNN, Sellers has become a popular voice on the critical issues of race, politics and social justice. Born in Denmark, S.C., he attended Morehouse College and later graduated from University of South Carolina School of Law. He entered the field of politics in 2006 and became the youngest black elected official in the United States when he served the Palmetto State’s 90th district.
“Bakari is a strong supporter of our mission to provide access to quality, affordable health care to our underserved and low-income neighbors,” said Deborah Williamson, Fetter’s board chair. “We are delighted that he will be our keynote speaker and will also participate in a question and answer session with our guests.”
