Event description
An evening of charity, elegance, and entertainment as we raise funds to support scholarships and the Wendell Scott Foundation.

About this event

Join us Saturday, February 12, 2022, for a black-tie gala featuring great entertainment, dinner, scholarship presentations, and an uplifting keynote address. The Wendell Scott Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization established to commemorate the memory of the first African American race car driver to win the Grand National, NASCAR's highest level, Wendell Scott.

The Gala offers an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of Wendell Scott and those who have devoted their time, talents, and resources to making a difference. The event will include a ceremony recognizing community leaders as the Wendell Scott Legacy Gala Award recipient. In addition, the event will serve to salute youth leaders as the Legacy Leaders of Tomorrow.

Held at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC, the upscale fundraiser features a keynote speaker, surprise guest, dinner, and a musical tribute performance by Grammy Award winning artist "Bilal" who is highly acclaimed in the US through the genres of R & B, soul, and jazz with a glittering roster of past collaborators including Jay Z, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, and The Roots.

Also just added Charlotte's own The Harvey Cummings Project!

The Gala's fundraising efforts help support the Foundation's educational programs and other program services. The Foundation works with colleges, community organizations, and institutions of higher education to create a pipeline for youth from underserved communities to rewarding opportunities in STEM-based careers.

Organizer Wendell Scott Legacy Gala

Organizer of WENDELL SCOTT LEGACY GALA | CHARLOTTE, NC

The Legacy Gala honors those who exemplify the leadership of our namesake, Wendell Scott, by demonstrating a strong support for higher education and generosity to others through philanthropic leadership. Funds raised through the gala will both help to secure a permanent home for our foundation and directly benefit programs and services to under-served children and families throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, most of whom rely on financial subsidies to complete their studies.
