Celebrity moms in Albany for good cause

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – It's homecoming week at Albany State University, and the mothers of three famous stars are in town to take part in homecoming events and bring attention to the power of mentors.

Cross Landing restaurant at the airport hosted a reception for the moms of "Different Strokes" star Todd Bridges, actress Nia Long, and hip hop star T-Pain.

Students from Darton and ASU waited for the women to arrive on a Wednesday night flight.

The mothers are supporting Hip Hop Grows Up, a non-profit group focused on increasing the number of mentors in the community.

"We're here to recreate that village it takes to raise our children, we're recreating that village by helping to mentoring our young people and each other," Talia Ashley, Hip Hop Grows Up Founder.

The Celebrity Moms will be at a golf fundraiser for the organization Thursday.

They'll also participate in the ASU HOMECOMING 2010 College Town Block Party on Friday.
