Jennifer Holliday

Join the Celebration...

Join us for an evening of philanthropy during our 2018 EPIC Gala on Friday, October 26 at the Raleigh Marriott City Center in Downtown Raleigh. This year's gala will feature Grammy Award & Tony Award winner, Ms. Jennifer Holliday.

This black-tie event supports Shaw University students and helps provide necessary financial support for the Presidential Scholarship Fund.  Our goal this year is is to raise $575,000. We hope we can count on you to invest in the future of our students and this HBCU.
