The City of Charlotte has long been recognized as a city of success -- from our natural assets and quality of life to our diverse economy, historical significance, entrepreneurial spirit and technological accomplishments. However, none of this success would be possible without the people who call this place home.
Charlotte is a diverse network of neighborhoods, a collaboration of residents each lending their culture, ideas, passion and volunteer effort toward bettering our community. To celebrate these achievements, and to learn more about resources available to support these efforts, please join us as we engage, learn and celebrate at the 2014 Neighborhood Leadership Awards. The event will be held 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, September 27 at BB&T Ballpark (Charlotte Knights Stadium).
