DURHAM, N.C. – The Emily Krzyzewski Center will hold a benefit Mother’s Day Ball on Saturday, May 7 in the President’s Ballroom at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club. The charity event will run from 6-11 p.m. and features cocktails, dinner and dancing to the music of the John Brown Jazz Orchestra.

The Emily K Center serves to inspire academically-focused, low-income students to dream big, strive for academic excellence, act with character and purpose, and reach their highest potential as citizen leaders.  The Center was named in honor of Coach Mike Krzyzewski's mother, and this inaugural Mother's Day Ball will pay tribute to all mothers through an elegant evening of fine food and dancing at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club. 

Tickets are $150 per person. For more information visit the registration page, call 919-680-0308, or email

An additional way to honor your mother is to purchase a page ($100) in the event program book, "A Tribute to Mothers," that all guests will receive. Photographers from world-renowned Tamara Lackey Photography will be in attendance to help document this special evening!  Their regular session fees will be waived for guests to have fun in the Black & White photo booth and personalized mini-portrait sessions.

Corporate Table Sponsorships are $5000 and include 10 tickets as well as corporate recognition and other benefits.  Please contact Treat Harvey at or 919-680-0308 for details.
