CHARLOTTE, NC (Mark Price/The Charlotte Observer) -

Bank of America says its uptown staff should stay home Friday, but Wells Fargo says it will be business as usual after three days of uptown protests.

Those protests, including violence and vandalism on Wednesday, prompted many major employers in uptown to tell their staffs to stay home Thursday. The violent protests Wednesday caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage to uptown businesses and tourist sites. One participant in the Wednesday protest was shot and later died.

Among the events canceled Friday or for the weekend:

The Democratic Women of North Carolina is postponing its 56th Annual State Convention, to be held in Charlotte this weekend. “The decision was made in consideration of those members who may be traveling to Charlotte from across the State,” said Concetta Caliendo, DWNC President. The future dates of the convention will be released as soon as determined.

The Jeanne Robertson performance scheduled for Friday, Sept. 23 at Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts has been rescheduled for Friday, Nov. 18. Current ticket holders will receive tickets for the new date automatically. Patrons can call 704-372-1000 with questions.

The Charlotte Knights are canceling the Berkshire Hathaway Family Movie Night Friday, Sept. 23 at BB&T Ballpark “due to the rise in tensions in Charlotte over the last 48 hours.” The event, which was set to start at 7:30 p.m., will be rescheduled.

The North and South Carolina chapter of Certified Commercial Investment Member association (CCIM) is canceling its Joint State Conference Thursday and Friday at the Omni in uptown. The event will be rescheduled. Refunds are being offered on registration fees.

The Association of Air Medical Services has postponed its Air Medical Transport Conference, scheduled for Sept. 26-28 at the Charlotte Convention Center. Alternate dates are not yet determined.

  • She said: It's time for Panthers to invest in secondary, starting in 2018 NFL draft

    Here's a revolutionary thought: The Carolina Panthers should invest in their secondary. And not with mid- to late-round picks or development projects, either. On April 26, the first night of the 2018 NFL Draft, Carolina should take a defensive back at No. 24. A day-one starter. A leader.
