athletic roast and toast

Athletic roast & toast


The Elizabeth City State University Athletic Roast & Toast is our premiere annual fundraiser. Our event goal is to bring the community together to raise critical funding dollars to support the student-athletes of Viking Athletics.  Viking Athletics are proud to combat the financial achievement gap and work towards providing an excellent student experience.

Our Annual Roast & Toast is attended by compassionate business leaders and citizens throughout Elizabeth City, Hampton Roads, and across the nation for one night of entertainment, philanthropy, and hilarious “roasting” of our honorees.   The success of this event will help support our Viking student-athletes. 

Each year we will honor a valued member(s) of our community and enjoy a hilarious, humble “roasting”! After our honoree survives the gentle, fun jokes and friendly fire, we toast to their generosity and commitment to improving the student experience of the Elizabeth City State University athletes.
