The United Negro College Fund (UNCF) will host its tenth annual UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball in person Saturday, March 25 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. 

Corporate partners, educators, religious leaders and community influencers will be in attendance, including host Mayor LaToya Cantrell.

The UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball is one of New Orleans’ signature fundraising galas and premier social events of the year, focusing on raising awareness of the need and benefits of a college education, the students UNCF serves and the contributions of historically Black colleges and universities.

This must-attend event is full of fun, fashion, glitz and glamour that supports UNCF’s mission of investing in better futures for the young men and women we serve and by helping them move to and through college.

Over the last decade, the New Orleans UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball has raised millions of dollars and assisted more than 1000 students through support of HBCUs and with scholarships to deserving students. 

Sponsorships and tickets for the event are available. For more information, visit
