Thu, 13 Nov 2014 14:26:16
Here is a lesson in some true, serious generosity.
Cash Money Records is expanding its annual tradition of hosting turkey giveaways in New Orleans, New York and Miami in 2014. After 18 consecutive years in their hometown of New Orleans, the brothers have extended their love and support to serve those less fortunate in New York and Miami as well.
The turkey giveaways stand out as an extension of the work done by the Johnny and Gladys Williams Foundation, which was established by Cash Money Records co-founders and brothers Ronald "Slim" Williams and Bryan "Birdman" Williams. Honoring their parents who instilled the virtue of charity within them, the brothers continually magnify the scope of the giveaways with each passing year. In keeping with the foundation's philosophy, these entrepreneurs and philanthropists take every opportunity to give back and bring light, laughter and love to families as well as individuals in need.
Miami, FL: Friday, November 21
This marks the third year YMCMB will host the giveaway in South Florida. Cash Money artists will distribute turkeys and side fixings to the Miami community at Little Haiti Soccer Park (6301 NE 2nd Avenue; Miami, FL 33127) from 11 to 6. Partners of the Charity event will include Little Haiti Optimist Club, City of Miami NET and WERD (99 Jamz). YMCMB is introducing for the first time free health screening in this market. Health sponsors are Euphoric Healing (chiropractic massages) and Iceberg Guards (dental).
New Orleans, LA: Tuesday, November 25
The 2500-turkey New Orleans giveaway remains a staple of the holiday season in the Big Easy. From 10 to 6, New Home Full Gospel Ministries (1605 Carondelet Street; New Orleans, LA 70130) will be the location for this year's bevy of activities including but not limited to mobile video games, free health screenings, and music by Q93. The Williams brothers and Cash Money artists will be available at the park to personally hand out turkeys and side fixings to families.
Courtesy of United Health Care, the screenings include checking for high blood pressure, respiration, pulse, diabetes, HIV, STDs and more. Guests have the opportunity to receive eye exams, podiatry, dental cleanings and check-ups in the fully-staffed medical area. Following their introduction last year, Aortic Disease and Marfan Syndrome heart screenings will also be on-site.
New York, NY: Tuesday, November 25
For the third consecutive year, the New York giveaway is all set to take place at theHarlem YMCA (180 West 135th Street; New York, NY 10030) from 2 to 6PM. YMCMB artists, famous athletes and Ball Up star players (Special FX, Mr. Afrika and AO) will be on hand to personally hand out turkeys and side fixings to disadvantage families.
For the first time, YMCMB have partnered up with Iceberg Guards (dental) and Harlem Hospital (medical) to provide free health screening at this year.
Slim said, "We look forward to this all year. It's one of the most important things we do. We're very happy to once again expand each of these giveaways this year and be able to help more people than ever before. We're just thankful we get the chance to do this."
Birdman adds, "For all that we're blessed with, giving back is crucial. It's an honor to serve the community, and that's something we take a lot of pride in. We want to do more and more every year, and we're all very excited about what's happening in 2014."
#YMCMB #Genorosity. Big ups to the pair for all they do to give back during the holiday season, when the plight of the less fortunate is magnified. They really do go all out. It's inspiring.
