Press Release | Carter Center Weekend Raises More than $4.3 Million »

All of our auctions are now closed. Thank you for supporting The Carter Center! Proceeds will benefit our ongoing efforts to wage peace, fight disease, and build hope in the world's poorest and most forgotten countries.


For three decades, President and Mrs. Carter delighted in spending a few days at a weekend retreat with a group of supporters who share an interest in global peace and health through the work of The Carter Center.

Now, at 97 and 94 years of age, they have handed off to a new generation to lead the Center and host this event. The Carters are proud that their eldest grandchild, Jason Carter, chair of the Carter Center Board of Trustees, has embraced this new role. They are also elated that the Center’s CEO, Paige Alexander, after two years of virtually emceeing Carter Center Weekend, can at last enjoy the company of supporters and their families at this event.
