We Believe Fundraising Luncheon
The We Believe Luncheon is our largest fundraising event of the year. The luncheon brings together over 600 people annually at the Westin Hotel in Uptown Charlotte to share in the successes of our women, children and families that we serve.
Women of Achievement Awards and Donor Recognition
Each year in October, YWCA honors three generations of inspiring women who exemplify the YWCA’s social justice mission of eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. These award-winning women harness their leadership, knowledge and creativity to better our community.
The three categories are:
- Community Champion
- Emerging Leader
This recognition is a way to empower women as role models and inspire change in young women and girls as well as young men and boys.
YWCA has a swim team that participates in the Hornets’ Nest Swim League from January until March. Girls and boys ages 5 – 18 practice on weeknights and participate in meets on Saturdays. With your help, YWCA can provide a healthy, rewarding swim team experience for young people from all parts of our community.
Each summer, we celebrate our women, children and families that we serve with a picnic in our backyard on Park Road. Food, music, games and family fun rule the day.
