The United Negro College Fund’s 33rd annual Atlanta Mayor’s Masked Ball on Saturday (Dec. 17), was a major success. Future, Usher, Tyrese, and Jeezy, were among the night’s donors, giving $25,000 a piece to the long-running organization, according to the tally Obnoxious Media was keeping and reports.
The “premiere fundraising gala” seeks to bring awareness to the “needs and benefits” of higher education, and“ the students UNCF serves and the contributions of historically black colleges and universities.”
Future donated $25,000 through his Free Wishes Foundation, while Tyrese’s $25,000 donation (on behalf of UNICEF) was quickly matched by his music peers, including Ludacris. Lamman Rucker and Pheadra Parks where Atlanta based celebrities in attendance. However, the event is just not what it once was and really needs an overhaul. Thirty plus years is a long time to do something the same old way. The night is long and the audience was wore out if not gone by the time Shelia E was to perform.
Jeezy is picking that weight back up and had some company that was questionable at best. According to one of his former bodyguards Jeezy has some secrets that might soon get out. After all he does love in Hot Lanta!
