Thurgood Marshall College Fund 22nd Annual Anniversary Dinner hosted by Danny Glover

Last night, The Fly Guys had another wonderful opportunity of attending an event held by The Thurgood Marshall College Fund Foundation. TMCF celebrated their 22nd Annual Anniversary Dinner, hosted by Danny Glover. Mary J. Blige was among the 2009 Honorees in which she gave a very moving speech. Also in attendance, was Jasmine Guy, Tasha Smith, Kerry Rhodes, Lynn Whitfield, Monica, Marlon Jackson and many others.

There was also special performances from Fantasia and Raheem Devaughn. A night to remember!

Seeing Fantasia up close and personal, was the best experience ever! She was electrifying! OMGeee!!!!

We were again, very thankful to be in attendance. The TMCF staff put together great event. To raise close to 5 million in just one week is unheard of. Congrats!
