The event will take place on Friday, Sept. 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the State Ballroom of the Raleigh Marriott City Center at 500 Fayetteville Street. Dr. Benjamin Carson, author of the personal narrative “Gifted Hands” and director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, will serve as the guest speaker for the event.

Our area’s students need the support of the community to receive a quality education that will help to position them for a successful future, and we look forward to supporting such efforts by sponsoring and attending this breakfast.”
