The event, at a private residence in Atlanta, is a precursor to the foundation’s major fundraiser next month in Bridgehampton, New York.
Among the attendees, CNN executives Susan Grant, Janelle Rodriguez, and Janet Rolle, Ambassador Andrew Young, jazz artist Irvin Mayfield, and hip-hop artist Ludacris.
The stated goal of the Soledad O’Brien & Brad Raymond Foundation is “to provide young women with a bridge between obstacles and opportunity, giving them the experiences, education and resources to overcome unexpected barriers to success.”
