Charity recipients announced
For a second year, Wells Fargo and Company will serve as the premier partner in the Foothills Gala charity event “Diamonds and Denim.” The gala, to take place Saturday, February 23, raises money for Upstate charities. “The Year of the Child” has been selected the theme for the 2013 event. In past years, the gala’s emphasis has been on assisting those who provide food, shelter and clothing assistance in the community. In 2013, the emphasis will be children’s needs. The next selected charities to benefit are Helping Hands of Clemson, serving Pickens County; the Collins Home for Children, serving Oconee County; and the Anderson-Oconee Speech and Hearing, serving Anderson County.
