In an event that truly lives up to its billing, a couple notable Redskins receivers were honored Saturday evening at the seventh-annual Washington Football Legends Scholarship Gala.

The charity benefit dinner and auction, which was held at the Bethesda North Marriott, honored the achievements of greater Washington, D.C., area football players, community leaders, members of the media and Redskins legends.

Among those recognized: Hall of Fame receiver Art Monk, who was awarded the "Bobby Mitchell Champion of the Gridiron Award."

Monk, a three-time Super Bowl champion with the Redskins, was selected to three Pro Bowls and retired from NFL with 940 receptions, an NFL record at the time.

Also recognized Saturday was current receiver DeSean Jackson, who was named the organization's 2014 Redskins Player of the Year.

Jackson finished the 2014 season with 56 receptions for 1,169 receiving yards and six touchdowns, leading the Redskins in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. His 20.9 yards per reception were tops in the NFL.

Other awards handed out on Saturday:

  • Keenan Reynolds, quarterback at Navy, was named the Washington, D.C., Area College Player of the Year
  • Richie Pettibon -- the grandson of the Redskins legend by the same name -- was awarded the Herman Boone High School Player of the Year
  • Jim Vance was given the George Michael Excellence In Media Award

The event has awarded nearly $150,000 in grants and scholarships to minority students in the Washington, D.C. area and is hosted annually by the Joyce & Thomas Moorehead Foundation and the Shack Harris & Doug Williams Foundation.

Several other Redskins legends were in attendance, as well as head coach Jay Gruden:
