Good Friends of the Lowcountry, a nonprofit that raises funds to provide one-time, limited monetary assistance to low-income families, is set to host its annual luncheon at 11 a.m. Nov. 29.

The event will include fellowship, stories from recipients and a silent auction. Last year's event raised more than $100,000, which provided assistance for 118 women in need, including help with housing, medical expenses and utility bills.

Registration for the luncheon is covered by an annual membership fee of $65.

The USS Yorktown Foundation has created a $50,000 need-based education fund for junior ROTC and other student military organizations that will provide scholarships to the Flight Academy at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum. This new program was funded by gifts from individual donors.

Patriots Point Foundation has also named Kenneth M. Pickens and Chaplain Maj. Gen. Charles C. Baldwin to its all-volunteer board. Pickens is a 1982 Citadel graduate. He is currently the executive vice president of South Atlantic Bank. Baldwin is a 1969 Air Force Academy graduate and pilot who served two combat tours in Vietnam.
