COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A Muscogee County official is being tapped to assist First Lady Michelle Obama with her largest fundraiser.

Vivian Creighton-Bishop, Municipal Court Clerk and wife of Congressman Sanford Bishop, was recently selected to co-chair the First Lady's Luncheon. 

The event attracts women and men from all over the world, including spouses of the heads of state and former first ladies.

"I'm very happy very pleased that they thought that I was worthy of holding that position," Creighton-Bishop tells News Leader 9. "So over the next year, I will be preparing for that event as the co-chair, and then I will chair that event during the last year of Obama's administration. I will chair that event for her."

Creighton-Bishop was the first African American President of the First Lady Club assisting Barbara Bush during the Bush administration.

The event will be held next spring in Washington, D.C. Proceeds will go to Michelle Obama's favorite charity.
