Jacksons pledge to continue Michael's dream at Georgetown dinner

Jermaine and Randy Jackson pledged to continue the passion their brother had for children's issues at a dinner in Georgetown Tuesday night. The dinner, held at Neyla, was in honor of the 2010 Children Uniting Nations Annual Conference and Gala Wednesday.

The elephant in the room was the fact that their brother was on trial in 2005 for allegedly molesting and intoxicating a minor (of which he was found not guilty on all charges).

"We are committed to working for what our brother Michael loved---children," Jermaine Jackson said. "This is why we want to dedicate a number of proceeds from our tour to the organization."

Randy chose a light suit and Jermaine a dark one. Quinton Aaron of The Blind Side was also in attendance. The 25-year-old actor arrived in a bright orange t-shirt and jeans due to his plane being delayed.

The event was hosted by Lani Hay, president and CEO of Lanmark Technology, Inc., Christine Warnke, senior governmental affairs advisor at Hogan Lovells US LLP and Greg Houston, president of PSA-DC and senior advisor at Odell, Simms and Lynch. Children Uniting Nations is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality mentoring relationships for at-risk and foster youth.
