2020 Virtual Maya Angelou Women Who Lead Luncheon – Charlotte

Please join UNCF and a host of dignitaries and friends for the 18th anniversary of this Charlotte tradition. This is a signature fundraising event for UNCF, named in honor of our beloved friend and volunteer, Dr. Maya Angelou.

This year’s event will be virtual, but it’s still the “can’t miss” event of the year!

During the Luncheon, women who are leaders and who have brought positive recognition locally, statewide and nationally will receive the distinguished Maya Angelou Women Who Lead Award.

Named after loyal UNCF supporter, the late Dr. Maya Angelou, the luncheon annually honors local women whose footprints positively impact the Charlotte regional community. Proceeds from the luncheon will be used to benefit students in North Carolina and the historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that educate them.

Individual tickets start at $50.
