We are pleased to announce State Senator Kevin Parker (Brooklyn 21st District) this year's Honorary Chair, Lisa Evers (Hot 97's Street Soldier) Emcee, Kym Hampton (Former WNBA New York Liberty player, Philanthropist & Jazz Vocalist) our Ambassador and some of the the toughest women's sports - members of the New York Sharks Women Football team will join us.

This event was created to raise funds for college-bound students to provide them with scholarships and services. UNCF supports 37 historically black colleges and universities and provides scholarships to minority students attending over 1,100 colleges and universities across the country.

Corporate teams, fraternities, sororities, groups, faith-based entities, organizations, HBCU alumni and individuals who participate realize that "A mind is a terrible thing to waste"® and the importance of giving back.
