Let Me Play Raises $200,000 for Sports Scholarships
The 13th annual Let Me Play luncheon has surpassed $200,000, exceeding the event’s previous record set in 2013. Recently held at the Charlotte Convention Center, Let Me Play raises funding for women’s sports scholarships at the University.
Conceived by Charlotte 49ers Director of Athletics Judy Rose, Let Me Play is designed to mobilize influential women in the Charlotte area in support of women’s athletics and share with them the importance athletic participation can play in the development of young women. It annually attracts many of Charlotte’s most accomplished female corporate and community leaders.
"Part of our mission statement as an Athletic Department says we have a responsibility to develop our student-athletes not just athletically, but academically and socially," said Rose. "Let Me Play has grown tremendously over the years and has allowed us to better fulfill that mission statement for all of our student-athletes, whether they are men or women. We are so thankful for all those involved in making this event a success and helping ensure that our young women have the same opportunities that our young men do."
