won­der­ful way to sup­port the young peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

“I think ed­u­ca­tion is a civil rights is­sue of to­day and we have to do ev­ery­thing we can to po­si­tion our chil­dren to have an op­por­tu­nity to be ed­u­cated and to move for­ward,” Al­so­brooks said.

Celebrity guests in­cluded ac­tress Daphne Maxwell Reid who at­tended the event with her hus­band, Tim Reid, an Emmy-nom­i­nated ac­tor, direc­tor and pro­ducer from Nor­folk, Va.

“I’m here to sup­port one of my pro­teges who was mod­el­ing in the show. She is a grad­u­ate of Richard Bland Col­lege and she is stay­ing with us for a cou- ple of months to start her mod­el­ing ca­reer. I came to sup­port her and to sup­port my hus­band’s part­ner [and model] Salome Au­tolino,” Reid said. “It was a won­der­ful event. I was very happy that I got to help.”

With more than 700 mem­bers, PG­CAC re­mains in the fore­front of craft­ing the de­bate on pub­lic pol­icy and so­cial is­sues, cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for higher qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion through the pro­vi­sion of an­nual scholar- ships and in­no­va­tive youth en­rich­ment pro­grams and also stim­u­lat­ing eco­nomic growth through evolv­ing and di­verse com­mu­nity-based part­ner­ships in the Bal­ti­more-Wash­ing­ton met­ro­pol­i­tan area and beyond, the web­site noted.

As an honorary mem­ber of Delta Sigma Theta, Reid said cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple, es­pe­cially young women, is what the schol­ar­ship ben­e­fit fash­ion show is all about.

“That’s why we do what we do — to bring up the next gen­er­a­tion of pow­er­ful women,” Reid said.
