The theme was "Caring and Sharing" at the Fullwood Foundation's 12th annual Benefit and Recognition Breakfast, as the organization honored myriad Marylanders for their efforts to help the community. About 1,850 people gathered at Martin's West for the morning mingle.

Among them: Harlow Fullwood Jr., foundation president; Elnora Fullwood, foundation vice president; Marcelina Morris, Betty L. Johnson, Dr. Charles Salters, Helen Dale, Larry Walton, Bessie Bordenave, honorees; Dr. Robert Booker, CEO of Baltimore City Schools; Dr. Irving McPhail, chancellor, Community College of Baltimore County; Tony Pagnotti and Sandra Pinckney, WMAR-TV personalities; Ken Higgins, president of Heavenly Ham; the Rev. Isaac Jenkins Sr., founder and executive director of Save the Youth Crime Prevention Program; Charles Stokes, Chrystel L. Sledge, Kirsten Sims and Terrence E. Robinson, student award and scholarship winners.

The breakfast raised more than $200,000 for Fullwood Foundation scholarships and to support various Maryland charities.
