Charlotte, N.C. (October 20, 2022) – The Chambers-McCain Foundation (CMF) will host its Second Annual Evening of Jazz and Comedy Fundraiser at the Mint Museum Uptown, located at 500 South Tryon Street, on Thursday, Nov. 3, at 6:45 p.m. This year’s event will be filled with fellowship, food, jazz music, and comedy to benefit programming for CMF.
The Chambers-McCain Foundation was founded in 2018 through the support of Beta Delta Boulé of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity. The organization serves and works closely with Beta Delta Boulé to cultivate young African Americans in the areas of leadership, education, and economic and social development. In addition, the foundation works within the community with organizations such as YBLA, The Males Place, and Johnson C. Smith University, providing scholarships, mentoring, and grants for young African American males.
The Chambers-McCain foundation raised $100,000 in its first two years and has supported over 500 students through their work. The foundation awards scholarships to eligible African American males in the Greater Charlotte metropolitan area each year.
“The Foundation is focusing on supporting our young men to help make it possible for them to go to college and achieve their goals of becoming leaders in their careers and community,” says Robert Keene, Chairman of The Chambers-McCain Foundation.
The evening will feature the musical stylings of The Dwayne Jordan Party Vibez Band, a special live performance from comedian Tara Brown and will be hosted by media personality Stacee Michelle. There will also be a raffle to help raise funds for the foundation.
