About the Ball

The Emily K Center’s annual Mother’s Day Ball honors the role of family and community in the development of today’s youth. Inspired by Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s relationship with his mother, Emily, the Ball brings together individual and corporate leaders for an evening of celebration in support of the Center. The 2024 Mother’s Day Ball will take place at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 4, 2024, at Durham’s Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club.
