The YAM Fall Ball is Charlotte’s ultimate YP annual event. For our 2019 gala, we are commemorating our 30th anniversary of philanthropic efforts to the Mint Museum!
Dance the night away alongside your closest friends, colleagues and Charlotte's finest young professionals as we celebrate 30 years of fun, incredible members, and unforgettable fundraising events.
We're bringing back the classic Black & White Gala in honor of our Pearl Anniversary. Come dressed to impress for an elegant night out in your best black-tie attire. Enjoy an open bar of hand crafted cocktails, beers and wines, and mouth-watering gourmet hors d'oeuvres.
All proceeds from the event are committed to raising funds to offset the cost of free school tours of the Mint Museum for school-aged children in Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. These tours inspire a new generation of artists and art enthusiasts who will make Charlotte a more vibrant community.
We’ll see you in 2020 for the 30th annual derby days!
Derby Days is our longest running event - 29 years and counting! Derby Days is the perfect way to enjoy a spring afternoon on the lawn of Mint Museum Randolph. Bring your friends for a day of entertainment that includes live music, lawn games and a large-screen viewing of the Derby!
Special thanks to our 2019 Derby Days Sponsors!

Events range from social gatherings such as curatorial tours of the Mint Museum's exhibitions and gallery crawls. Past events include a tour of the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, a photography class taught at The Light Factory, and a preview of fashion and trends with Belk fashion designers followed by a private tour of Mint Museum Randolph’s historic costume collection.
