NC100BWMAC Signature Events allow the chapter to support the objectives of the Teens on the Move Mentoring Program and Scholarship Fund along with educating the public through our community programs.
The Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter launched "Gourmet Gents" in 1990 as the organization's first annual fundraiser. For the inaugural event, more than 100 Atlanta gentlemen responded to the Chapter's call to volunteer their time, culinary skills, and food to raise money for the Chapter's service project. To date, thousands have attended and supported the signature charity function, which includes volunteer chefs, food from Atlanta's premier restaurants, and live entertainment. Since its inception, Gourmet Gents has helped support the organization's teen mentoring program – Teens On the Move. The Gourmet Gents event also includes some of Atlanta's most prominent professionals, civic and business leaders, and local media personalities.
To further our mission, one of NC100BWMAC’s most notable advancement efforts is the annual "Tee off for Teens" Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the annual tournament directly support NC100BWMAC's teen scholarship fund. The Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter is committed to creating opportunities for African-American female youth so that they can grow into self-sufficient adults. Our Scholarship Fund provides tuition assistance to young women who show academic improvement in grades 9-12, enabling them to continue their education and obtain college degrees. Since 1995, the Coalition has awarded more than 488 scholarships to young women, totaling over $795,000. Your participation in "Tee Off for Teens" will allow the Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter to reach even more young women with our scholarships. Thanks to the generosity of our members, partners, and sponsors, we continue to witness the results—young women thriving in college and making a significant impact in their communities.
The Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., conceived the Unsung Heroine Awards Gala in 1997 as an opportunity to recognize African-American women. The awards are presented to women in our community who work tirelessly to empower their community in vital areas such as education, health, politics, civic responsibility, business, and entertainment. These women labor tirelessly without recognition. The women honored are nominated by their peers and voted on by an independent panel.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the organization's Economic Empowerment Programs, which provide transitional support services to women and children who need a helping hand as they transition from dependency to self-sufficiency. Thanks to the Allstate Foundation, the title sponsor of the Economic Empowerment Initiative: "Sisters Helping Sisters," NCBW-MAC is empowering the Atlanta community.
The event provides training for NC100BWMAC members, including two days of diverse and informative workshops and/or panel discussions, a sponsor luncheon, and a member induction ceremony. Proceeds from this function benefit our chapter's health initiatives.
