The Old North State Forever: Preserving our Past, Discovering our Future

The 2013 Governor's Inaugural Ball features a full weekend of events honoring North Carolina's newly elected Governor and Council of State. The crown jewel of the celebration will be on Friday, January 11, with the Gala Presentation and Inaugural Ball in the Raleigh Convention Center. Following extensive research and review of community needs, proceeds from the 2013 Inaugural Ball and related events will benefit the Junior League of Raleigh’s Center for Community Leadership. As a training hub, the offerings of the Center for Community Leadership further the League’s mission to train community leaders who make vital contributions in all facets of their lives, in their jobs, at home and in the community. The Center provides leadership training programs, affordable meeting space and collaboration opportunities to its members, nonprofit staff and aspiring business and nonprofit leaders.
