The Carolinas Freedom Foundation Rising Stars Class of 2022 is a group of motivated and dedicated young professionals working to raise money in support of CFF programs that INSPIRE patriotic citizenship in our youth and community as we HONOR the service of veterans and first responders. The Rising Star who raised the most funds during the short six-week campaign is awarded the prestigious Polaris Award.

Rising Star nominees and supporters will gather for the 3rd Annual Polaris Award Dinner at the historic Palmer Building (2601 East 7th Street, Charlotte). Following a wine reception and banquet dinner, Matt Eversmann, immortalized in 'Black Hawk Down' and co-author with James Patterson of Walk in My Combat Boots, will deliver a keynote address. As well, the Class of 2022 Polaris Award winner will be announced.
