Jeezy, Future, 2 Chainz and many more donate to charity at the 33rd Annual United Negro College Fund Atlanta Mayor’s Masked Ball.
At the 33rd Annual United Negro College Fund Atlanta Mayor’s Masked Ball last Saturday, Future, Jeezy and many more celebrities took the opportunity to donate to charity. The aforementioned Atlanta rappers each gave $25,000 to the program.
Attended by civic leaders, alumni and dignitaries, the event supports United Negro College Fund's (UNCF) mission of investing in better futures for the youth by helping them move to and through college.
2 Chainz, who was also on hand, recently sold an ugly sweater for $90,000. All proceeds went to his charity, T.R.U. Foundation.
Tyrese and Usher were also party of the festivities. Representatives for Tyrese say the artist also gave $25,000 the UNCF. Usher has been involved with the UNCF, providing a $100,000 scholarship for worthy college-bound students. Meanwhile, Future has been involved in the local community through his FreeWishes Foundation.
The event was held in the Atrium Ballroom at Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
