The New Orleans UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball is a private occasion financed by UNCF givers and supports, and is facilitated by Mayor Cantrell, with whom we have an incredible relationship and genuinely value her impassioned help. Nonetheless, UNCF comprehends the worries around the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and deferentially wishes to protect everybody until this general wellbeing emergency can be settled.

For a long time, UNCF has helped the greater part a million understudies go to school, however consistently we should dismiss nine out of 10 understudies because of absence of subsidizing. Our HBCUs, similar to Xavier and Dillard colleges, both situated in New Orleans, and the understudies they serve rely upon UNCF’s help through occasions, for example, the Mayor’s Masked Ball.
