Get into the philanthropic spirit with Jada Paul getting girls prom ready and Jazmine Sullivan feeding the homeless to celebrate her 30th birthday inside…
Over the weekend, Jada Paul, wife to Los Angeles Clippers baller Chris Paul, hosted her sixth annual Prom Dress Giveaway n collaboration with her husband’s Chris Paul Foundation at the Intercontinental Hotel in Century City.
“This is our sixth year doing the prom dress giveaway and it gets better every year,” stated Jada Paul. “It means a lot to our family to help make the prom a memorable evening for the girls. In addition to this event, we also host one in Winston Salem, North Carolina, our hometown.”
Nice! Doing it big in two cities.
125 lucky high school seniors in the L.A. area were treated to a day of pampering to get them ready for prom. The event included a light breakfast buffet, runway fashion show with models from Natural Models LA and the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit, a braid bar sponsored by Keyes Automotive, and makeup instruction by The Glam Agency.
In an effort to make each young lady’s prom night special, the ladies were able to select everything they will need for their big night, including their prom dress, shoes, purses and jewelry.
YBF actress Holly Robinson Peete stepped out to show support of Jada’s endeavor.
After wrapping up the event, Jada’s family joined her for a group shot, including her mother Jackie Crawley, her aunt Rhonda Richardson, her sister-in-law Desiree Paul, her mother-in-law Robin Paul, her cousin Tequio Richardson, her niece Chloe Paul and, of course, her daughter Camryn Paul.
Props to another successful year for Jada and her crew getting some young ladies prom ready!

I decided for my 30th to round up my people and feed the less fortunate. I'm so grateful for all my family and friends who chose to selflessly give of their time and resources to help me. It made me so happy to see all U guys thanks to @ayisha_ummahsiya and @unitedummahofphilly for helping put things together! Last but not least thanks to @shopritestores for their generous donations! #dirty30

“I'm so grateful for all my family and friends who chose to selflessly give of their time and resources to help me. It made me so happy to see all U guys,” she captioned.
How sweet. Peep the clip above to see her camp in action.
