*Orangeburg, SC – The MA Lee Scholarship Fund announces The 6th Annual M. A. Lee Scholarship Fund Gala. The Gala will take place on Saturday, August 6, 2011, 1175 Orangeburg Mall Circle, Orangeburg, South Carolina, 29115 hosted by “Dream Girls,” actor/ singer, Keith Robinson beginning at 6:00 p.m.
Hot off the heels of a highly successful celebrity basketball game this past April, the M.A. Lee Scholarship Fund wanted to stick with that theme and offer something different from past philanthropic celebrations. Normally, the Gala highlights guest speakers and awards presentations. But this year’s Gala is all about entertainment.
The M.A. Lee Gala will bring together some of South Carolina’s most talented individuals from singers, actors, dancers, and spoken word artists for a night of festivities Orangeburg will not soon forget! The Gala also usually brings out some of Hollywood’s best including actors, Lamman Rucker, Rockmond Dunbar, Telma Hopkins, Terrell Tilford and singer/stage actor, Terrell Carter. This year’s Gala offers us Oscar nominated film “Dream Girls” actor, Keith Robinson. Mr. Robinson, a Greenville, South Carolina homeboy, can also be remembered from the films, “Dear John,” “This Christmas,” and “Fat Albert.” Of course, M.A. Lee Scholarship Fund National Spokesperson, Mr. Darrin Dewitt Henson of “Stomp the Yard” and “Soul Food” fame will again be on hand to show his love and support for such a worthwhile cause. Oh, and did I mention, the Gala will also have in attendance a very special surprise guest? This is one event if you are in South Carolina, you don’t want to miss!
The M.A. Lee Scholarship Fund was established in 2006 to provide academic scholarships to first year college students with difficult financial circumstances. The Scholarship Fund is named after its founder, Dr. Maurice A. Lee. It is the goal of the foundation to obtain corporate sponsorship to expand the reach of assisting those in need of aid with college expenses.
