2020 “Commitment to Justice” Event Has Been Rescheduled

Here at the Center, we hope you and your family are safe and well during these
times.  We are thankful for your continued support at this critical moment, and we
know that we can get through this challenging situation, together.

Looking forward, we have chosen a new date for our “Commitment to
Justice” Award Reception honoring Christine Osburn Jackson.  Please save the
date of Thursday, August 20th, as the Center pays tribute to Mrs. Jackson at the
Francis Marion Hotel.  The event will begin at 5:30 p.m.

We are grateful for your patience and understanding, and we look forward to
paying tribute to Mrs. Jackson, who inspired a generation of young women to
become strong leaders and advocates for justice.  We also look forward to welcoming our sponsors and ticket holders on August 20th .

If you have not purchased a ticket or sponsorship, you may still do so. Please
contact Brett Wadford at or call 843-745-7055
