November 13, 2014 at 4:56 AM (PT)
CASH MONEY RECORDS continues its annual tradition of hosting turkey giveaways in NEW ORLEANS, NEW YORK and MIAMI for THANKSGIVING this year. After 18 consecutive years in their hometown of NEW ORLEANS, the WILLIAMS, RONALD "SLIM' and BRYAN "BIRDMAN," have extended their love and support to serve those less fortunate in those two cities 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 the two CASH MONEY RECORDS co-founders, honoring their parents, who instilled charity within them. The brothers continually expand the scope of the giveaways with each passing year. In keeping with the foundation’s philosophy.
The MIAMI Turkey Giveaway will take place FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21st, when CASH MONEY artists will distribute turkeys and side fixings at LITTLE HAITI SOCCER PARK (6301 NE 2nd Avenue) from 11a-6p (ET). Partners of the charity event will include LITTLE HAITI OPTIMIST CLUB, CITY OF MIAMI NET and COX MEDIA GROUP Top 40 Rhythmic WEDR (99 JAMZ)/MIAMI, while, for the first time, sponsors EUPHORIC HEALING (chiropractic massages) and ICEBERG GUARDS (dental) will offer health screening.
The giveaway in the WILLIAMS' hometown of NEW ORLEANS takes place TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25th, from 10a-6p (ET) at the NEW HOME FULL GOSPEL MINISTRIES (1605 Carondelet Street), where the activities will include 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.
For the third consecutive year, the NEW YORK giveaway on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25th will take place at the HARLEM YMCA (180 West 135th Street) from 2p-6p (ET). YOUNG MONEY/CASH MONEY 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 disadvantaged families.
For the first time, YOUNG MONEY/CASH MONEY have partnered up with ICEBERG GUARDS (dental) and HARLEM, HOSPITAL (medical) to provide free health screening.
RONALD "SLIM' WILLIAMS stated, “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 added, “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.”
