Knights donate candy proceeds to charity

The Knights of Columbus plans to donate $6,700 to Beaufort County charities next month.

The local branch of the Catholic fraternal society raised the money during its sale of Tootsie Rolls in September and October, according to a news release.

The money will be presented to Special Olympics programs in Beaufort and Jasper counties, Heroes on Horseback in Bluffton, and Programs for Exceptional People on Hilton Head Island, the release said.
