FLINN BROADCASTING CORP. Mainstream Urban KXHT (HOT 107.1)/MEMPHIS teamed up with rapper YO GOTTI, former NBA star ANFERNEE "PENNY" HARDAWAY and THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF MEMPHIS and to reach out to needy families in the area with the 3rd Annual "YO GOTTI CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL."
Close to 400 kids were given presents and enjoyed a winter carnival with: face-painting, bouncing houses, merry-go-rounds, kiddie trains, cotton candy, funnel cake, free haircuts and more. THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF MEMPHIS brought close to 300 of its members with approximately 75 more children showing up via word-of-mouth.
GOTTI welcomed all with open arms and enough gifts for all. Three families were guaranteed a very happy holiday with GOTTI and HOT 107.1 taking care of their complete gift-giving lists. An additional 16 children were especially chosen to receive bicycles.
THE CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL is the third incarnation of the "YO GOTTI CHRISTMAS" initiative started by the rapper in 2012. In previous years, he has personally delivered presents and necessities to families in need around the city.
"They say you're blessed to be a blessing to others," says GOTTI. "There's no better time to live that saying then the holidays. Especially when so many families are struggling. I'm just happy to be able to make a difference and at least take some of these kids out of the struggle for an afternoon."
