Dooley to speak at fundraiser banquet

Speaker and author Barbara Dooley will be the keynote speaker for The Augusta Chronicle We Think Pink banquet tonight.

Dooley, the wife of former University of Georgia football coach Vince Dooley, is a breast cancer survivor and will be coming up on the milestone of her five-year anniversary scan next month.

Last year's breast cancer awareness banquet raised $10,300 for the Lydia Project, which often helps with bills and rent for women with cancer. This year's event, which is sold out, is being held at Savannah Rapids Pavilion. Doors open at 6 p.m., and dinner begins at 7 p.m.

The banquet will feature a silent auction that benefits the Lydia Project. Items up for bid include a football signed by former UGA star and Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker.
