Black Tie Benefit Auction

Black Tie Auction

In an effort to continue with the tradition of serving the youth and providing scholarships to the future leaders in the Prince Georges County, the Bowie/Mitchellville (MD) Alumni Chapter’s Diamond Foundation hosted its 8th annual benefit auction and dinner. Last year’s benefit auction raised $5,000 towards scholarships for the local youth. This year’s event proved to be successful in meeting its goal of doubling that amount. Over $10,000 was raised. Some of the items up for auction included a Michael Jordan framed and signed jersey, a trip for two to the Grammy Awards, and a 56 passenger luxury bus, just to name a few.  Prince Georges County Council Member Obie Patterson gave the keynote address. It was a great time had by all.
