Event description

Description

You are enthusiastically invited to join us for our inaugural event, The WINGS Charlotte SOAR Awards luncheon. The SOAR Awards are designed to showcase and celebrate advocates in our community who have championed equality in education, out-of-school time, and advocated on behalf of those less privileged. Seldom do we have the opportunity to honor individuals who work tirelessly behind the scenes to be agents for change!

In this, our inaugural event, WINGS will present SOAR Awards to:

The Honorable Jennifer Roberts, Mayor of Charlotte

Debra Plousha Moore Systems Chief of Staff, Carolinas HealthCare System

Jay Everette Senior Vice President Community Affairs, Wells Fargo

Richard “Stick” Williams Retired, Duke Energy Foundation

We are also thrilled to announce that renowend scholar Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., an American literary critic, teacher, historian, and filmmaker who currently serves as the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard University will serve as our keynote speaker.

For more information about sponsorships, please contact Annie Burton, Charlotte Executive Director at annie@wingsforkids.org or 980.216.8872. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. for registration.
