Michelle, Fergie, Isaiah, and Forest, Oh My!
So many stars in town! Even we are overwhelmed by how much was going on last night! We started with an actor and a duchess at a gala for the Gondobay Manga Foundation, which seeks to improve living conditions for the people of Sierra Leone.
We snapped the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, who delivered a keynote, here with former Grey’s Anatomy star and Gondobay founder Isaiah Washington at the Westin Grand Hotel, honoring leaders for their commitment to Africa. Isaiah told us that although he loves DC when it’s cold, his favorite time is when the cherry blossoms are in bloom!
Academy award winning actor, producer and director Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) was also there to support Sierra Leone and Africa, by advocating for positive improvements one village at a time.
