COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCSC) - Vice President Kamala Harris spoke at the South Carolina Democratic Party’s annual Blue Palmetto Dinner in Columbia on Friday night.

The fundraiser was held at the Columbia Convention Center on Lincoln Street.

The dinner returns prior to the state’s primary elections, which will be held next Tuesday. It will also be held a day prior to the state Democratic Party’s convention, also held at the Columbia Convention Center.

The fundraiser returns this year following a two-year break, and former Gov. Dick Riley will be honored.

Riley served as South Carolina’s governor from 1979 to 1987 and would later serve as the country’s Secretary of Education from 1993 until 2001.

Individual tickets to the dinner started at $150, with ticket options costing up to $5,000.

All funds raised through the event will go toward supporting the South Carolina Democratic Committee’s federal account.
