Toni Shelton, well-known Hollywood publicist and Chicago native, will receive a Humanitarian Award at her upcoming All White Affair.

Toni Shelton, a well-known Hollywood publicist and celebrity commentator who came from the same Hyde Park neighborhood as President Barack Obama, is being honored with a humanitarian award, created in her name, which will be given out on an annual basis. The “Toni Shelton Humanitarian Award” will be presented to her at her All White Affair Party, to be held on July 7, 2011.

“This is going to be an exciting day for me, and I look forward to sharing it with everyone back home,” explains Toni Shelton. “Receiving this award is a great honor, and I’m very humble to have been chosen for this award and look forward to sharing this honor at the annual white affair.”

The Coalition for Enhanced Humanity, an organization bringing people together to empower each other thereby enhancing the existence of humanity with deliberate informed action, is presenting Shelton with the Humanitarian Award for the way she has enhanced the lives of others, offered encouragement, and shared her inspirational life experiences with others. She is also being cited for helping others to fulfill their own dreams, touching many lives along the way. Recently, to support troops in the Middle East, she purchased hundreds of cards to send to the soldiers.

The All White Affair Party, with The Queen of House Music , Toni Shelton is set for Thursday, July 7, 2011, from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. It will be held at Jak’s Tap at 901 W. Jackson in Chicago.

Shelton remains involved in many areas, including having a forum called “Keepin’ it Real with Toni Shelton,” and a new radio show that is being developed, called WKIRTS.

“Last year, we had Carlos Santana and George Daniel, along with other celebrities at my annual party. It was an amazing time,” adds Shelton. “Not bad for someone who actually grew up living directly across the street from President Obama. Just goes to show that great things hail from Hyde Park!”

Shelton is also known for putting her commentary skills and personal flair to use, formerly working on the “10 Worst Hollywood Divorces” on E! Entertainment Television.
