All photos by JONATHON ZIEGLER for PMc] The City's reality starlet Whitney Port lent a charitable hand Wednesday night as she ventured to Times Square for the Stand Up and Be Counted fundraiser benefiting the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda at the Hard Rock Cafe. It's nice to see Whitney taking a break from the video cameras, clothing line, and the not-working-for-Diane von Furstenberg-and-back-to-working-for-Kelly-Cutrone drama to show support for a great cause. More story and photos from this event below... She was joined by MTV's John Norris and Kim Stolz, artist Michael Isreal, actresses Spencer Grammer and Susan Egen, AYSV founder Anne Heyman, and the evenings honorees Emanuel and Liz Stern, to raise funds and awareness for the newly developed youth center for teenage orphans scarred by genocide in Rwanda.
