Gala for Education Event Postponed

Dear LAWA friends and supporters,

LAWA recognizes the ongoing uncertainty that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing in the country and in our Charlotte community.  We have closely monitored the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (
CDC), World Health Organization, and Governor Cooper’s statements regarding this threat, and we are following guidelines from these agencies and the local health departments.

The health and well-being of our LAWA friends and supporters are of paramount importance. It is with this in mind that our Board of Directors has decided to postpone our annual fundraiser Gala for Education until later this year.  Since the situation is still evolving, it is too early to announce specific dates for the event and we appreciate your understanding and patience.  We hope that you will be able to join us at the rescheduled Gala as this is our biggest single event to fund and support our ongoing educational programs and scholarships to 30 Latino students.

Tickets purchased for the March 28 date will be honored for the new date.  If you have any questions please contact Ana Rey at  or 704-552-1003.

Most sincerely,

Ana Rey
LAWA Executive Director
