2018 “A Mind Is…” Hamptons Summer Benefit - New York

Please join UNCF’s President and CEO Dr. Michael L. Lomax and the co-chairs for the events, Jean Shafiroff and Gregory Lowe II for an exciting weekend of celebrating individuals who continue to make extraordinary contributions in the field of education. Proceeds from the events will benefit UNCF’s educational initiatives and play a key role in making sure deserving low-income students get the resources they need to get to and through college.

The event will also feature:

  • Silent Auction (click here to donate auction items)
    • Items vary from luxury brands and sports events to exotic trips
    • All auction items will be live; attendees will have an opportunity to bid on all items

A portion of the proceeds from the Hampton Benefit will provide scholarships for underrepresented students from the east end of Long Island, from Riverhead to Montauk. For more information or sponsorship opportunities, contact UNCF at 212.820.0147 or e-mail Lexi Hellerman.

Presented by UNCF New York.
