Atlanta’s 33rd Annual Mayor’s Masked Ball Raises 1.1 Million for United Negro College Fund
UNCF is the nations’ largest and most effective minority education organization. The UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball Atlanta is a premier fundraising gala and major social event that aims to raise social awareness of the need and benefits of a college education.
This fabulous and prestigious event brought out The Who’s who…such as Ambassador Andrew Young (Civil Rights Activist) Usher Raymond, Tyrese Gibson, Future, Jeezy, Dr. Jackie Walters (Married to Medicine), Egypt Sherrod (Property Virgins), Angie Stone, Vashawn Mitchell, Phaedra Parks (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Reece Odom (Saints and Sinners) and many more civic leaders, dignitaries, celebrities, volunteers and friends of UNCF.
The night was spectacular with loads of fun which included but not limited to the ambiance, the beautiful men and women that graced the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, an amazing cuisine, great energy, successful silent auction and financial contributions, stunning masked parade, Tyrese’s moving speech of the importance of giving and using your prominent influence for good and the hilarious MC of the evening Jay Anthony Brown (Comedian). Not to mention a notable performance from one of the living legends Sheila E. She gave us life and tore the house down with her buzz worthy performance.
The amazing UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball Atlanta committee Kasim Reed (Atlanta’s Mayor), Michael L. Lomax, PHD (President and CEO, UNCF), Maurice E. Jenkins, Jr. (Executive Vice President National Development, UNCF), Justine Boyd (Regional Development Director, UNCF), Donta Wilson (Honorary Co-Chair) and Brannigan Thompson (Honorary Co-Chair). Without these beautiful souls and other sponsors, the UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball Atlanta would not be possible. Thank you so much for showcasing black excellence!
