COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Bill McDaniels, a businessman and philanthropist was honored Thursday at a charity event benefiting Cancer Centers of Palmetto Health.

McDaniels has been the driving force in raising nearly $4 million for the Cancer Centers of Palmetto Health.

All of that money has stayed in the community to provide the best equipment, programs and services for families faced with cancer.

In honor of McDaniels' leadership, passion and dedication, he received the Order of the Palmetto from Gov. Nikki Haley.

An honor that caught him completely by surprise.

"This is indeed an honor and I accept it... thank you so much for making it happen," McDaniels said.

McDaniels has been the signature sponsor of the Palmetto Health Foundation McDaniels Golf Classic for 23 years.

Thursday's silent auction raised over $100,000.
