Halls Chophouse to host luncheons for Debi’s Kids

  • Monday, October 7, 2013

WCSC Live 5 News and the King Street Marketing Group and will put on two special luncheons at Halls Chophouse Thursday, Oct. 10 and Friday Oct. 11 to benefit Debi’s Kids. Thursday’s speaker will be Live 5 News Anchor Debi Chard, and Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh will speak on Friday.

Chard is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Debi’s Kids, WCSC’s community outreach project to provide holiday gifts for children at Christmas.

Last year Debi’s Kids helped provide Christmas gifts for more than 5,000 children in the Tri-County area. This year, Debi’s Kids is focusing on active toys, gifts and sporting goods to keep Lowcountry children physically fit.

Each luncheon will feature a silent and live auction of autographed wine bottles from the Robert Maguire autograph collection of more than 100 legendary celebrities in music, sports, entertainment, business and politics like Jack Nicklaus, Charlton Heston, Sonny Bono, Etta James, Bill Gates, Robin Williams, Jeff Gordon, Johnny Bench, Bill Cosby and Warren Buffet, to name a few. Proceeds from the autograph auction will benefit Debi’s Kids.

Thursday Oct. 10

Live 5 News Anchor Debi Chard will share stories from her career covering news in the lowcountry and around the nation over the last three decades. Earlier this year, Chard was one of a half-dozen local TV anchors invited to the White House to interview President Obama on the country’s aging infrastructure, specifically the Crosstown Expressway drainage project.

Chard extensive reporting background includes medical breakthroughs and advances from Charleston’s vast healthcare community and Boeing’s operations in both North Charleston and Puget Sound.

Friday Oct. 11

Friday’s luncheon will feature Live 5 News Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh who will take us behind the scenes of broadcasting and forecasting weather in the Lowcountry for more than 20 years. Walsh is an expert on tropical storms and hurricanes, and has covered every system that’s hit the lowcountry since before Hurricane Hugo in 1980.
