The Smith Family Foundation recently rolled out the purple carpet for its second Trenton Stars Awards scholarship fundraiser, recognizing eight community members.
Family and friends gathered on Saturday to witness these people being recognized for their help to those in the greater Trenton area. The night is used to shine a light on community leaders and emerging stars while raising money for their scholarship program.
“This is an award that the Smith Family Foundation gives to community members who has made an impact and leadership in their community," said Dr. Valeria Arthur, director of community engagement. "This is where we honor people that have done great work or is doing great work, or they are emerging community leaders.”
