(AllHipHop News) While for most Labor Day marks the official end of summer, the beginning of a school year, and the approach of the holiday season, in Atlanta, Labor Day is LudaDay Weekend. In year's past, celebrities and key influencers from all over the world have flocked to ATL to lend their time and talents to support the community initiatives and activities surrounding this annual event.
"LudaDay Weekend" always means lots of great parties all around the city; however, the importance of giving back to the community is the primary focus of "LudaDay Weekend." This year, Ludacris has made a commitment to highlighting local charities that support the city of Atlanta, including Frank Ski Kids Foundation, Inc., Keshia Knight Pulliam's Kamp Kizzy, Antwan "Big Boi" Patton's Big Kidz Foundation, Josh Powell's 21 Reasons Foundation, Get Schooled.org, Do Something, Ryan Cameron Foundation, and the Boys & Girls Club of Atlanta.
"Each and every year LudaDay Weekend gets bigger and better. I'm grateful to give so much back to the city that put me on in the first place, Atlanta, GA. This weekend has been known to change people’s lives. Including mine,” Ludacris told AllHipHop.com exclusively from London where he is filming Fast & Furious 6.
In addition to the above mentioned causes, "LudaDay Weekend" has also partnered with the local organization, Charles McCree Presents: Project Walk A Mile In My Shoes, to collect donations of new and slightly used shoes and sneakers to be collected at the Ludacris (Team Luda) vs. Kevin Hart (Team Hart) Celebrity Basketball Game on Sunday, September 2, at Atlanta's Morehouse Forbes Arena.
The 7th Annual LudaDay Weekend will also feature other exciting events including a DJ and Media Appreciation Party, Luda & Friends College Campus Takeover at Clark Atlanta University on Saturday, September 1, a day party at Frank Ski’s Restaurant and Lounge, and a private mansion pool party.
