Whitney Houston’s estate is getting back into the charitable fundraising business.
The new Whitney Houston Legacy Foundation has been established by the late singer’s sister-in-law and executor Pat Houston. To kick it off, they’re planning a gala in Atlanta on August 9th co-chaired by Tyler Perry and Jennifer Hudson. Cece Winans will perform.
The event is raising money for the Trinity Girls Network, founded in 2016 by Jacqueline Mohair, who is described as “a nationally known Transformational Business & Life Strategist, Advocate, Professor, Life Coach, Minister, Serial Entrepreneur, and Ambassador to the UN.”
I’m told the Legacy Foundation is considering this event a “soft” opening. There will be a bigger gala arranged around what would have been Whitney’s 60th birthday next summer.
