Cash Money Records CEO’s Launch Program For Underprivileged Kids

Cash Money Records CEO’s Ronald ‘Slim’ Williams

and Brian ‘Baby’ Williams will officially inaugurate their “Cash Money

for Kids” program during halftime at tonight’s (Feb. 5) New Orleans Hornets’

sold-out game against the Sacramento Kings.

Cash Money For Kids will purchase and donate

100 tickets for underprivileged youths in New Orleans for all upcoming Hornets

home games.

"Baby and I wanted to reward kids who are

doing well in school, this is one way," Slim told AllHipHop.com in a statement.

The brothers will be joined by New Orleans’

mayor, The Honorable C. Ray Nagin and New Orleans Hornets owner Ray Wooldridge

“Cash Money Records is setting a great example

with this act of generosity,” Hornets co-owner Ray Wooldridge said. “Ronald

and Bryan have not forgotten their roots and are committed to helping others

in the New Orleans area. These tickets are just one more way that they continue

to give back to their community.”

The brothers have also launched the Johnny &

Gladys Williams Foundation, named in memory of their deceased parents. The foundation

donates food, offers scholarships throughout the year and every Thanksgiving

for the past 4 four years, the successful hip-hop label has hosted a free turkey

giveaway.

Tickets purchased by Cash Money will be distributed

by the Hornets community relations department, and will be issued to various

charitable organizations and underprivileged children in the New Orleans area.
