The Salvation Army of Spartanburg announced their 21st annual Toast of the Town benefit event, saluting two of Spartanburg’s most respected doctors, Julian C. Josey, M.D. and James D. Bearden, M.D.
The event will be held on Tuesday, April 29 at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium. Toast of the Town is a benefit that honors outstanding members of the Spartanburg community. All proceeds support youth programs at the Salvation Army Community Center of Spartanburg. “Roasters” for the evening will include David Church, Billy Webster, Danny Smith, and Jimmy Gibbs. Dinner will be served at the event.
“Dr. Josey and Dr. Bearden were chosen because of their dedication to Spartanburg and to service. Although they often humbly decline praise and accolade, their tireless work speaks volumes of the good they continue to produce throughout the community,” stated Captain Donnie Marvels, Commanding Officer of The Salvation Army of Spartanburg. “Their combined passion and commitment has led to the development of a nationally recognized, award-winning cancer program at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. They are the epitome of the results that yield from passion, hard work, and perseverance.”
Past honorees include Former Mayor Bill Barnet, Jimmy and Marsha Gibbs, Carolina Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson, and Wofford Head Football Coach Mike Ayers.
