Keshia Knight Pulliam helped to raise more than $1 million for her alma mater, reports the YBF blog. The former “Cosby Show” co-star, who graduated in 2001 with a B.A. in Sociology and a concentration in film, teamed with Spelman College Board Members to host a Fall Fashion Presentation and fundraiser at SAKS in Atlanta.
Among the attendees: Ne-Yo’s fiancee Monyetta Shaw, Spelman College President Dr. Beverly Tatum, actress LaTanya Richardson and Andrew Young’s wife Carolyn Young. The luncheon included a champagne toast and live auction. The money raised will go toward scholarships to benefit Spelman students who are unable to graduate due to financial hardship.
