The annual Power of Sharing awards gala was established to recognize the tremendous impact local nonprofits are making throughout our community. This year Code the Dream was honored to be invited and selected as the runner-up in the Education category, a wonderful recognition for our work. We are also grateful for the $5,000 award, which will allow us to provide an opportunity for more diverse students to hone their talents, gain experience while building apps that benefit our community and eventually achieve their goals of meaningful careers.
The Power of Sharing is hosted by the Coastal Credit Union Foundation and made possible by an impressive collaborative effort from AT&T, BASF, BCBSNC, Capitol Broadcasting, Citrix, Lenovo, Duke Energy, IBM and the Triangle Business Journal. The event was a unique opportunity to come together with other nonprofits that serve low-income families across central North Carolina and be inspired by their work. Also, it isn’t often that we get to attend a ‘gala’, so that was fun too. Thank you to everyone who made the event possible!
