Genesis Convention Center 1 Genesis Convention Plaza, Gary
UNCF seeks your support for the 2020 Gary Mayor’s Breakfast, our 7th 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.
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.
Hosted by the NW Indiana Leadership Council and the Honorable Jerome Prince. Event presented by UNCF Indianapolis.
Tickets are $35. Sponsorship opportunities are available.Learn More Tickets
