and Brian ‘Baby’ Williams will officially inaugurate their “Cash Money
for Kids” program during halftime at tonight’s (Feb. 5) New Orleans Hornets’

"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.”

Gladys Williams Foundation, named in memory of their deceased parents. The foundation
donates food, offers scholarships throughout the year and every Thanksgiving
