Meet Our Winner: Transcend Charlotte

Our dynamic judging panel — comprised of Jay Bilas, Corri Smith, and Jason Terrell — selected the $12,500 2nd Place Award Winner. We caught up with Cole Monroe, President of the Board of Directors of Transcend Charlotte, about the impact of winning at SEED20. 

These funds will help Transcend Charlotte continue to change the the lives of transgender Charlotteans. One of our goals is to make sure that we remain visible and educate others in the community and SEED20 has helped us do that on a much larger scale. I loved being able to share our organization’s mission with more of Charlotte. I am still overwhelmed by the love and support that we have received from this city on April 16th!
