Steve Harvey held a black-tie affair last night in New York to support young men. Steve and Robin Roberts of “Good Morning America” hosted the 1st Annual Steve Harvey Foundation Gala at Cipriani Restaurant. The event was a fundraiser for his mentoring weekends aimed at guiding young Black men down the right path.
Steve has already been doing an on-air drive during his morning radio show to fund the weekends, attempting to raise the $1 million required to make his vision a reality. Monday’s gala was a new approach at earning the money, but Steve doesn’t take credit for the event.
“The gala was my wife’s idea,” Steve admitted. “She’s gone to them before and tried to drag me along, so she told me it was the appropriate thing to do. I just kind of took her lead on this one.”
Denzel and his wife, Pauletta, surprised Steve with a generous donation of $1 million.
