The LVF Continues Educational Philanthropy Of Acclaimed Singer Luther Vandross

The Luther Vandross Foundation, with support from Waterford, Primary Wave Music and the Luther Vandross Estate, celebrated the educational philanthropy of Luther Vandross this past Saturday with an inaugural luncheon in Philadelphia. Friends, family, and supporters gathered at the Historic Belmont Mansion in West Fairmount Park to celebrate not only Luther’s life, but his legacy of supporting students and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Guests arrived at 1pm to the sounds of Luther’s music playing throughout the venue. A Waterford Master Craftsman was on hand crafting custom cuts within the crystal of a unique decanter which will be auctioned off at a future date to benefit Luther’s Foundation before everyone moved into the main tent. The day included remarks from the Foundation’s Brenda Shields and Sheila Cook, as well as the Estate’s Fonzi Thornton. Read More Here
