The STANDOUT program, benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, honors the Charlotte area’s most active and engaged professionals who demonstrate leadership, are active in the community, have excelled in their chosen profession or vocation, and have a desire to grow both professionally and philanthropically. Those selected to the STANDOUT Class of 2022 will be among the most prominent and influential members of our community.
The program culminates in a celebration event this fall where honorees along with their colleagues, friends and families will gather to celebrate the Class of 2022. Leading up to the culminating event, honorees are invited to monthly socials to network with fellow community leaders and spend time gaining awareness about cystic fibrosis through meeting those impacted and virtually touring the Care Center at Levine Children's Hospital. In addition to celebrating Charlotte’s young leaders, STANDOUT increases community awareness of cystic fibrosis.
STANDOUT Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis through 5pm on Monday, April 18, 2022 and those nominated are asked to formally accept their nomination by submitting a resume and questionnaire before 5pm on Monday, May 2, 2022. A selection panel will review nominees and select the final 25 STANDOUT honorees for the Class of 2022. Honorees will be notified of their selection in late May.
