Roundtree Inauguration Gala benefits local charities

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

New Richmond Co. Sheriff Richard Roundtree hosted several other Augusta notables as they benefited several local charities.

Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver and several Richmond Co. Commissioners were just some of the attendees at the Inaugural Charity Gala at Legends Club Friday night.

The gala featured a dinner and silent auction. The proceeds will help local charities, including The Augusta Partnership for Children and Golden Harvest Food Bank.

"That's money put right back in Augusta and hopefully, next year, when we do this again, we'll be able to expand that list," Roundtree says. "You know, it's about expanding every resource we have back to the community."
