Event Description

Join UNCF (United Negro College Fund) as the Charlotte community celebrates the 16th annual signature fundraising event named after UNCF’s loyal friend and supporter, Dr. Maya Angelou. The luncheon will be held on Saturday, Sept. 29 at noon at the Westin Charlotte.

Raising funds for local students and the historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that support them, the luncheon honors a village of women whose footprint positively impacts their community.

This year’s Maya Angelou Women Who Lead honorees include:

2018 UNCF Maya Angelou Elizabeth Ross Dargan Lifetime Achievement

  • Dorothy Counts Scoggins, retired civic leader/civil rights activist

2018 UNCF Maya Angelou Women Who Lead Honorees

  • Regina Heyward, senior vice president head of supplier diversity, Wells Fargo & Company
  • Tiffani Teachey, senior chemical process/systems engineer Westinghouse Electric Company
  • Good Friends Charlotte

2018 Young Leader Honoree

  • Kelly Davis, executive director for the Thomas Davis Defending Dreams Foundation (TDDDF)

More than 500 guests are scheduled to attend the event, including singer and actress Maria Howell and keynote speaker Shirley J. Hughes, chair of the board of trustees, Johnson C. Smith University. Tickets are $150 and include the “Morning Glory Affair” from 10 a.m.- noon featuring red carpet photos, music, networking and shopping from 14 different vendors. An elegant luncheon will follow, including one of the highlights of the fun-filled day, the HATitude competition.

With help from the Charlotte community, last year’s luncheon raised more than $150,000 to send deserving African American North Carolina students to college and support local UNCF member-institutions, such as: Bennett College, Johnson C. Smith University, Livingstone College, Saint Augustine’s University and Shaw University. This year’s event promises to exceed those numbers with help from gold sponsor Wells Fargo; bronze sponsors Coca Cola, NASCAR, PNC Publix Supermarket Charities, EY, Food Lion, Fifth Third Bank, Extended Stay America, Ally, Green Lewis Charitable Fun, Geico, Xerox; and media sponsors Radio One and V101.9.
