The fundraising dinner was to "honor Dabo Swinney and South Carolina Defenders of Religious Liberty." Swinney was to accept an award but was not scheduled to speak at the event.
The Palmetto Family Council is a conservative advocacy group that opposes same-sex marriage and abortion.
The Palmetto Family Council’s website states, “Over the years we have been involved in South Carolina’s Partial Birth Abortion Ban, the defeat of Video Poker, preserving marriage as between one man and one woman, defending religious liberties, and many other issues."
