Puffy Hosts Community Carnival, Sponsors Charity Tour

Sean "Puffy" Combs will return to his old neighborhood in Mount Vernon, New York, this weekend to play host to a back-to-school festival being held for local youths and residents.

Puffy's Bad Boy Entertainment and Sean John clothing line is co-sponsoring the event, dubbed the First Annual Back-To-School "Diddy Day" Carnival, which will be held on Sunday, August 13, at the Fourth Street Playground.

The community-based carnival is the latest philanthropic effort for Combs, whose "Daddy's House" social programs offer educational opportunities and extracurricular activities to kids through the Harlem YMCA in New York City.

On Wednesday, Puffy launched the "Daddy's House Cross Country Summer Youth Tour," which is taking 30 young people from urban areas on a collegiate tour of several college campuses, including Georgetown University, Howard University, Morehouse College, Atlanta University, Spelman College, and Florida A&M University.

Combs is outfitting

all the kids on the tour with Sean John clothes and is expected to pay them a visit during stops in Atlanta and Orlando, Florida, where the tour spends a day at Universal Studios.
