2023 UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball – Hampton Roads

UNCF Richmond and Hampton Roads, Virginia area mayors will host the 6th Annual Hampton Roads Mayors’ Masked Ball on Saturday, March 11.

Enjoy a masked reception, gourmet cuisine, red carpet photo opportunities, a paddle raise, silent auction, an HBCU charge with a special recognition of the 2023 UNCF Masked Award Honorees and more.

The UNCF Mayors’ Masked Ball is one of the organization’s signature fundraising galas and premier social events of the year. Hosted by a diverse group of corporate sponsors and individuals, it involves celebrities, dignitaries and more than 500 business, civic and education leaders, alumni and others who support UNCF’s mission of investing in America’s future by getting students to and through college.

Last year’s UNCF Mayors’ Masked Ball generated a record $320,000, helping to get students to and through school. The 2022 Gala enabled UNCF Richmond to provide more than $1.7 million in scholarships in the 2021-2022 academic year to deserving Virginia students across the state.

Presented by UNCF Richmond.
