The Third Annual BET Honors celebrated the accomplishments of Whitney Houston, Queen Latifah, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Dr. Ruth Simmons, and Dr. Keith Black in Washington DC at The Warner Theatre. The main focus of the star-studded evening was the crisis in Haiti. DC Mayor Adrian Fenty and BET CEO Debra Lee called out to viewers and audience members alike to support relief efforts for those who were affected by the recent devastating earthquake in Haiti. “Before this disaster, BET Networks, in celebration of its 30th anniversary, was set to donate thirty thousand dollars every month for a year to an organization that has dedicated itself to working towards a brighter future for the African American community,” said Lee in her remarks. “In light of the devastation in Haiti, BET plans to donate the first grant to immediate emergency relief in Haiti.” We applaud BET for putting the focus on the Haiti crisis throughout the show and their generous donation for relief efforts.
