On The Scene: Second Annual Steve Harvey Foundation Gala

Comments (1)

On April 4, 2011, Steve Harvey held The Second Annual Steve Harvey Foundation Gala at New York City's Cipriani Club to support his mentoring program for young black males. During the ceremony Harvey honored Tyler Perry, Chris and Malaak Rock and Ford Motor Company's CEO Alan Mulally for their charitable contributions to the black community.

Friend of Harvey and 'The View' star Sherri Shepherd co-hosted the gala and shared with Black Voices how important the foundation is to her as a mother raising a black male. "I absolutely support Steve's vision because I have a son and its hard trying to teach my son how to be a strong man," she said.

Entrepreneur and filmmaker Tyler Perry mentioned that although he's famous for his various films and portrayal of the character "Madea," he's a strong advocate of mentoring. "There's a lot of things I do to help out and I don't make it public but there's a need and every week I'm trying to find a way to fulfill it," he said. His advice to single mothers raising young men was to connect their children with a mentor. It helps "show these young men how they could behave and what they can do" to better their lives.

The multi-hyphenate media personality glowed throughout the night and affirmed his passion for his foundation and for helping improve young black men's lives. "This is our one and only mission, I'm in charge of the boys and [Marjorie Harvey's] in charge of the girls, just like at our house," Harvey said of his goal to expand his mentoring program. This year's gala raised more than $600,000 for the program raising the bar for next year's fundraiser.
