Steve Harvey and GMA’s Robin Roberts hosted the 1st Annual Steve Harvey Foundation Gala on Monday night (May 3) in NYC. Held at Cipriani Wall Street, the Gala supported the Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men.
Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and wife Pauletta stunned the audience when Washington announced a $1 million gift to the Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend. Steve said this after hearing about the donation:
“I am stunned but at the same time I’m not because this gift exemplifies Denzel and Pauletta. Giving comes real easy to them and although that’s surprising to a lot of people, its not surprising to us. Marjorie and I are so grateful and will use this money in the spirit it has been given – to change the lives of young men around the world.”
Many celebs were in attendance and the event also had a special performance from Toni Braxton. More photos below.
