CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Organizers of the 12th Annual UNCF Maya Angelou Women Who Lead Luncheon said they honored the life of the poet who passed away.
Dr. Maya Angelou died at her Winston-Salem home in May. She was a poet, author and civil rights legend.
Organizers said the annual event became a tribute dedicated to remembering Angelou's life and commitment to education.
Angelou was a volunteer with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) for more than 25 years, officials said.
Angelou participated in the UNCF Maya Angelou Tribute to Achievement and the annual UNCF Maya Angelou Women Who Lead Luncheon, which is in Charlotte.
Organizers said the luncheon has raised more than one million dollars in the past 11 years. The money raised goes to benefit UNCF member institutions in North Carolina.
UNCF presented awards to four local women who have made a difference in their professions and communities, organizers said.
Officials said the 2014 honorees are Rhonda Caldwell, president and chief event officer of The Main Event; Jacqueline Ford, owner of Great Food Services; and Dr. Ophelia Garmon-Brown, a family physician and vice president of community and business partnerships for Novant Health.
Grammy award-winning gospel legend, Pastor Shirley Caesar, received the Maya Angelou/Elizabeth Ross Dargan Lifetime Achievement Award.
Before the luncheon, community members participated in the HATitude competition.
Officials said women wear their favorite hats and compete to win prizes for the best and most unusual headpieces.
