Raleigh, NC – Jeanne Frazer, president of vitalink® and a founding partner of HBCUgrow, has been named a Co-Chair for the Raleigh-Durham 2016 UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball. Corporations, community groups and individuals are invited to support UNCF’s mission of investing in Better Futures® for us all by getting students to and through college.
“vitalink has worked with many universities over the past 10+ years, and higher education is near and dear to our hearts,” says Frazer. “A recent study estimated that 65% of U.S. jobs will require some form of post-secondary education by 2020 . The number of adults with post-secondary degrees is currently less than 40% . The UNCF’s mission to help deserving students attend and complete college is a worthy one. I am very excited to co-chair the UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball in support of a great cause.” The Honorable Nancy McFarlane, Mayor of Raleigh, and The Honorable William V. (Bill) Bell, Mayor of Durham serve on the Host Committee for the event. Celebrities, dignitaries, civic leaders, volunteers, public officials, alumni and others who support the UNCF mission are expected to attend the Ball.
