Nearly30 years ago the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) was launched to provide scholarships, internships and other academic support for minority students. And it's also the subject of one of the longest running televised events, called An Evening of Stars. The program brings awareness to UNCF's work to get more African American students to and through college. This weekend we'll see the latest An Evening of Stars show, and America's Next Top Model Monique Stateena will be hosting one of the local viewing parties that are taking place to celebrate An Evening of Stars weekend.

UNCF's An Evening of Stars airs this Saturday, January 26, at 8:00pm on KONG-TV.
