Since 1933, the Junior League of Raleigh has been honored to host the NC Governor’s Inaugural Ball.
The Junior League of Raleigh has been pleased to partner with Governor Cooper and First Lady Kristin Cooper to celebrate the Tar Heel State and everything that makes it so special by hosting this nonpartisan community impact fundraiser.
Considering the ongoing pandemic and impact this health crisis has on our community and state, the Junior League of Raleigh has made the difficult decision to end planning celebration festivities for our elected leaders. We look forward to celebrating North Carolina’s Governor and Council of State in January 2025 after the 2024 election cycle.
We extend our sincere thanks to Governor Cooper and First Lady Kristin Cooper for their patience and cooperation in working with us over the past 14 months. We look forward to honoring Governor Cooper before his second term ends.
