Queens Oak for Women Events

Queens Oak Advisors and our firm’s women’s initiative, Queens Oak for Women, were proud to sponsor recent events to promote organizations focused on supporting women.

7th Annual Football Finale with Dress for Success Charlotte

Queens Oak was the title sponsor for the “7th Annual Football Finale” on February 6, 2020. Deems May, a Queens Oak Partner as well as a former NFL player, acted as the emcee and engaged his former NFL colleagues in a lively review of several key Super Bowl plays for the crowd.

The 200 guests braved tornado warnings and The Charlotte City Club remained open, all to support and promote Dress for Success Charlotte’s important programs.

“Our purpose is to offer long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty. Dress for Success is part of a global movement for change, empowering women to obtain safer and better futures.”   https://charlotte.dressforsuccess.org/about-us/what-we-do/

Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement, founded by Maria Shriver

On October 30, 2019, over 300 guests attended “The Purple Luncheon” to raise money for Alzheimer’s research and hear Maria Shriver speak with Dr. Chuck Edwards, founder of the Memory Care Center Charlotte, and Dr. Laura Baker, a professor at Wake Forest School of Medicine and the lead researcher in 4 national Alzheimer’s lifestyle trials.

“The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to raising awareness about women’s increased risk for Alzheimer’s and to educating the public — women and men — about lifestyle changes they can make to protect their brain health.”   https://thewomensalzheimersmovement.org/
