Cash Money's Annual Turkey Giveaway Set For Miami, New Orleans
November 17, 2015 at 11:40 AM (PT)
Upholding a 19-year tradition, CASH MONEY RECORDS' RONALD "SLIM" WILLIAMS and BRYAN "BIRDMAN" WILLIAMS will once again host turkey giveaways in NEW ORLEANS and MIAMI this NOVEMBER.
The MIAMI giveaway will take place on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20th, while NEW ORLEANS is set for TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24th. The JOHNNY AND GLADYS WILLIAMS FOUNDATION -- founded by the WILLIAMS brothers as a tribute to their parents -- produces the yearly charity.
The executives first envisioned the TURKEY GIVEAWAY in 1996 as a means to give back to their hometown NEW ORLEANS community, which provided a foundation for them to become one of the city’s biggest success stories. That same year, they instituted the JOHNNY AND GLADYS WILLIAMS FOUNDATION.
In recognition of the philanthropic work that the brothers have tirelessly engaged in, the IRS granted an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization status to the foundation for 2015.
Commented SLIM: “Every year we feel even more blessed to get the chance to host these giveaways. Our parents taught us how important charity and community are, and we’re honored to receive the official 501(c)(3) certification for the JOHNNY AND GLADYS WILLIAMS FOUNDATION. I hope we can do even more this year.”
Added BIRDMAN: “This is what it’s all about. If you’re blessed, share those blessings. We learned that from a young age, and that’s what we always try to do. These communities have lifted us up, and this is our chance to lift them up. It’s not just for THANKSGIVING, though, we try to make it a tradition every day.”
