Tim Reid Celebrity Weekend Observes
20th Anniversary May 8, 2010
The Tim Reid Celebrity Weekend will be held Saturday, May 8. The highlight of this year‟s event is a 20th Anniversary Gala that will be held at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Virginia Beach. The gala begins at 6 p.m. The Tim Reid Ce-lebrity Weekend event began in 1990 shortly after NSU‟s most famous alumnus, Tim Reid was appointed to the NSU Board of Visitors. Since 1990, the event has raised thousands of dollars for students throughout the state. Proceeds for the event are for the Virginia Scholarship and Youth Development Foundation (VSYDF), a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that began on the campus of Norfolk State University.
"We are proud to be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Tim Reid Celebrity Weekend. The Foundation's motto is "Universal understanding through educa-tion," said Tim Reid in a recent interview. The Foundation relies on the financial support of individuals, alumni, businesses, and organizations to achieve its mis-sion of providing college scholarships to at-risk high school seniors. "For 20 years, Daphne and I have worked with the Foundation to achieve its goal. The major fundraiser for the Foundation is the Tim Reid Celebrity Weekend. Actors, musicians, comedians, and dignitaries are invited to donate their time and to participate in a weekend of activities." Over the years, some of Hollywood‟s big-gest and brightest stars have participated in the event including Will Smith, Lark Voorhies, Percy Daggs, Marcus Paulk, Damaine Radcliff, Blair Underwood, the O„Jays, and Tia and Tamera Mowry.
We currently have four students enrolled at Norfolk State University as Tim Reid Scholars and the Foundation has given scholarships to hundreds of other stu-dents. Mark your calendars and plan to participate in the 20th Anniversary Tim Reid Celebrity Weekend Gala on May 8. Tickets are just fifty dollars. With your help, the Foundation can continue its mission of providing scholarships to at-risk students. For additional information, please contact Willie L. Brown at (757) 418-0031.
