Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill 400 New Jersey Ave., NW Washington, DC 20001
In 2013, the UNCF Washington Area Office presented the inaugural UNCF Masked Ball; in 2015 the event was re-launched as the UNCF Washington Mayor’s Masked Ball, hosted by the Honorable Muriel Bowser, Mayor of Washington, DC. The event has become a highly anticipated premier Washington social event and signature fundraiser for UNCF.
The UNCF Washington Mayor’s Masked Ball raises funds to support scholarships and programs for nearly 4,000 students from the greater Washington, DC- area who attend UNCF-member institutions and other colleges across the nation. Revenue from the Mayor’s Masked Ball has grown 200 percent since the inaugural event, thanks to the unwavering and generous support of our sponsors and attendees, but there is still so much more work to do.
The Mayor’s Masked Ball program will include:
- Pre-Ball General Reception
- Live Auction
- The Parade of Dignitaries
- Elegant Dining and Live Entertainment
Strictly Formal Attire
- Ladies: Long Gown and Mask
- Gentlemen: Black Tie and Mask

Genesis Convention Center 1 Genesis Convention Plaza, Gary
UNCF seeks your sponsorship support for the 2018 Gary Mayor’s Breakfast, our 5th annual breakfast event. Net proceeds from this fundraising event will support UNCF’s education mission and help break the financial barriers that prevent so many talented students from earning a college degree.
Our request is in line with your company’s commitment to increasing educational opportunities for minority students in our community. UNCF-member colleges graduate more of their African American students than other private colleges or public universities, and their low tuition rates are less than half those charged by other private colleges. Because college graduates earn higher incomes than non-graduates, your sponsorship will be an investment in the future teachers, business leaders, engineers, physicians and other professionals who will graduate from UNCF-member colleges to become productive participants in their communities and in the U.S. economy.
The breakfast will feature greetings from the Honorable Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson, who is dedicated to educating minority and under-represented students and a member of the UNCF Northern Indiana Leadership Council. Event presented by UNCF Indianapolis.
Individual tickets $35; sponsorships available.Learn More Info Contact
