PASADENA, CA – Pictured Above:  Michelle Thornhill, senior vice president and African-American segments manager with Wells Fargo and Dr. Michael L. Lomax, President of CEO of the United Negro College Fund.  Wells Fargo served as a sponsor of the United Negro College Fund’s  (UNCF) “An Evening of Stars,” where R&B legend Chaka Khan was honored.  The company hosted a private reception for the singer Friday evening at the Westin Hotel.  Senior staff from UNCF member colleges and universities attended a brunch hosted by Wells Fargo.  College staff members were able to learn about the economic outlook for 2011, and the job and housing markets provided by Wells Fargo economist, Anika Khan. Additionally, other Wells Fargo company leaders spoke about retirement planning and investment as it relates to African Americans, while sharing information about Wells Fargo’s “Leading the Way Home” initiative designed to create sustainable homeownership.

  In addition to hosting the brunch and reception, the weekend ended with a live taping of the UNCF’s “An Evening of Stars,” where celebrities paid tribute to Chaka Khan for her stellar career and support of education.  The UNCF Evening of Stars telecast will air on BET networks and WGN on January 23rd and 24th, 2011.
