As she prepares for her new album, Ashanti Douglas looked fabulous today in DC today, along with LeBron James and Denzel Washington on behalf of the "Great Futures Start Here" campaign with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Get the deets and pics inside….
Earlier today, Ashanti, LeBron James and Denzel Washington appeared at The National Press Club in Washington, DC for the "Great Futures Start Here" Campaign Launch. All are part of the new Boys & Girls Club campaigns shot recently (and also benefited from the programs themselves). So they’re all about giving back.
Ashanti rocked the dark peony "Jacket Dress" from Black Halo. Very cute.
The campaign is a program launched by The Boys & Girls Club Of America. Ashanti, Denzel and LeBron are ambassadors for the organization.
The three celebs each took turns on the mic offering words of encouragement to the kids.
Afterwards, they posed for pics. Great to see our YBF celebs reaching out to the kiddies.
