MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A charity founded by Minnesota Supreme Court Justice and Pro Football Hall of Famer Alan Page honors its own all-stars this weekend.

The Page Education Foundation will celebrate 27 years of helping students of color have better access to higher education on Saturday with an all-star themed annual benefit gala at Target Field, highlighting former and current Page Scholars.

Students selected as Page Scholars get financial help for their post-secondary education, and in turn they spend at least 50 hours each year working with school children as real-life role models for success. In 2014 alone, the Foundation awarded educational grants totaling $812,000 to more than 500 Page Scholars attending more than 50 colleges and universities across Minnesota.

Page hits the Supreme Court’s mandatory retirement age of 70 in August.
