EVENT FAB: Steve Harvey Raises $600,000 And Salutes Tyler Perry And Chris & Malaak Rock

Last night, a who's who in entertainment came out to raise over $600,000 for the Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men.  Steve Harvey and his foundation also honored Tyler Perry, Chris and Malaak Rock and Alan Mulally of Ford Motor Company.  Come inside to see pics of Sherri Shepherd, Marjorie Harvey, Russell Simmons and others...

 

Last night, New York’s Cipriani Wall Street played host to the 2nd Annual Steve Harvey Foundation Gala.  The fab gala was hosted by Steve Harvey and Sherri Shepherd of "The View," and raised over $600,000 to benefit the Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men.

Above, Steve and Marjorie Harvey posed with honoree Tyler Perry and model Gelila Bekele.

Tyler Perry posed with his date model Gelila Bekele.  Interesting.... 

Steve posed with his lovely wife Marjorie Harvey in a gown I'm loving.

They were later joined by honoree Malaak Rock.  Something's off  about her look and I just can't put my finger on it.

 

Angela Simmons wore a Juan Vargas dress with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.  And turned the red carpet into her own personal photoshoot.

 

 

Sherri Shepherd arrived with her fiance Lamar Sally.

Model and reality star Cynthia Bailey looked great.  Not my fave choice of dress but she pulls off pretty much anything. 

Steve and Marjorie posed with Lauren and Justin Tuck.

 

Branding genius Steve Stoute was there.

 

Pauletta Washington was there.  Y'all know my pet peeve about rocking shades indoors.  So unnecessary for this event.  But do you boo.

Antonio "L.A." Reid arrived with his wife Erica.

Dr. Ian Smith lent his support.


 

Geoffrey Canada, founder of Harlem Children's Zone attended the gala.

Marjorie posed with Tonya Winfield and Pauletta Washington.

The Steve Harvey Foundation co-chairs all posed for a group pic.  David Robinson, Raymond McGuire, Marjorie Harvey, Steve Harvey, Madeline Nelson-Small, Steve Stoute, Russell Simmons, Kimberly Davis and Geoffrey Canada.

 

Of course the fellas had to get their own shine: David Robinson, Raymond McGuire, Steve Harvey, Steve Stoute, Russell Simmons, and Geoffrey Canada.

Steve and Majorie posed with their children Wynton Harvey, Karli Harvey, Morgan Harvey, Lori Harvey, Brandi Harvey and Jason Harvey.  Wonder how Wynton's doing after all the hoopla with his mama Mary.

Bernadette Stanis aka "Thelma" was there.   

Honoree Chris Rock entertained the crowd.  By the way, he's been getting into character lately for his Broadway role in the production of The Motherf**ker With the Hat.

Boris Kodjoe posed with "RHOA" Cynthia Bailey and hubby Peter Thomas.

Steve had a little fun with Marjorie.

And Gayle King.

LA Reid kicked it with Russell Simmons.  Russell joked on April Fool's day that he and his bro Rev. Run would return to Def Jam to take over LA's vacated position.  Funny funny.

Chris and wife Malaak looked good together.

Steve and Sherri kept the energy in the room moving.

And Angela posed with her uncle.  Great to see our folks doing great things for our own.

TP's date looks kinda young,

TP's date looks kinda young, and not just physically. Pretty girl though, and after hearing the things he said on "Oprah", Im gonna pray for him and all the other children who've been sexually abused. Angela Simmons is just doing WAY too much for me. Something about that girl has become offputting. However, props to Marjorie for looking so age appropriate and elegant. Meanwhile, Chris looks like a young Frederick Douglas. LOVE IT..lol I know Pauletta is married to one of the sexiest men in the world, but I dont think that gives license to wear that thing around her ankles. I bet some stylist told her it looked amazing. But i think it looks more like when your grannie's knee highs started sagging and ended up around her ankles. Cynthia Bailey looks STUNNING> I wish she would get away from Nene though. Cynthia & Boris look great standing together too, on a purely aesthetic level I think they make a better couple than with their respective spouses.

I guess what's "off" about

I guess what's "off" about Maalak's look is that she's a first wife who married before babies, and is still married. Looks too boring or strange, huh? Dressed up skank looks more interesting.

As I scrolled down the page

As I scrolled down the page of this post looking at the pictures to get to the comments so I can laugh at some of the clean but funny jokes I came across the "tyler perry looks so gay" & the "he has that gay face" its totally mind boggling that people would make fun of this man like that & write those hurtful & hateful things! You MUST not have watched his epsiode on Oprah or read his open letter on his website...all of the things that man has been through I cant even blame him for being confused about his sexuality! You people should be ashamed of yourselves its NOT a laughing matter! I just want to pray for him & ask god to give him strength to make it through because god knows almost everyone is trying to bring this man down!!

Look at these two crooks

Look at these two crooks Steve Harvey and Tyler Perry. Black women hate black men so much that they are willing to buy into a comedian who all of a sudden becomes a relationship guru GTFOH with that bullshit this negro is as fraudulent as they come. Just look at that sly smile. Tyler Perry keeps making B grade documentaries glorifying MAD black women while these women spend their money to go see his wack so call movies which allows him to go laughing to the bank!!! These two chimps need to ditch these weave queens and venture over to europe and meet me in mallorca to be exact where we can party with these women money and spend it on some HOT European spanish women!!!!!!
killacam or BlackRepublican's picture

Actually, black women love

Actually, black women love black men so much that we give them all the sex they want, home-cooked meals and sometimes, our hard-earned money, just so you'll stay in our lives. And what do we get in return? Nothing, you always leave, very rarely marry us even though we've shown we would make a good wife. We read books like Steve Harvey's to learn how to be better women so that we can convince a man to marry us. But you, BlackRepublican, and most other black men run from responsibility, are COWARDS that men of other races pity. You obviously care nothing about your own community so you can stay over there with your spanish european women.

I love your comment..But if

I love your comment..But if we learn not to try to convince them to marry us..find our own way..our own money..our own business..our own successful life. And give them a good hardcore jungle fuc- only when we want and on our terms..guess what? They will come running back to your door. And it's up to us to open it.. or leave it close shut. I stayed single with a dildo for 34years. I got the husband, successful business on my own and I'm a nurse. But I never made chaseing luv or dic- my priority! Dont go looking it will come to you.-Peace..Shalom-

Steve Harvey is a fraud his

Steve Harvey is a fraud his ex-wife aired his ass out and now that joker is heavily relying on a gag order to prevent the truth. I'm confused how this clown became a relationship guru when he is a comedian by trade. Black women don't do everything for their men, they EMASCULATE!!!! According to black women white woman do everything for their men and thats why you guys call them weak isn't it? I have no responsibilities besides me, myself and I PAL!!!!!I can not be characterized as a coward because i chose to broaden my horizons and explore different races of women which i was put on this planet to do. I am an equal opportunist and i will not subject or limit myself to black women only. I believe it's call free democratic society and i don't owe my community or black women crap, enough of the socialist bullshit every man for himself better known as CAPITALIST sweety!!!!
