'Wheel of Fortune' star to appear at shrimp festival

This year's Beaufort Shrimp Festival will feature a little extra star power.

Vanna White of the television game show "Wheel of Fortune" will appear at the 17th annual festival this month to help promote the S.C. Education Lottery's Wheel of Fortune instant ticket, according to a news release.

Purchase of two tickets will entitle attendees to meet White and get her autograph, the release said.

The festival, organized by Main Street Beaufort, USA, is scheduled for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.

White will attend only the second day of the two-day festival, according to state lottery officials.
