6th Annual Creating Change Campaign
Kidney Disease Awareness
“Your story is the greatest legacy that you will leave to your friends.
It’s the longest lasting legacy you will leave to your heirs.”
Approaching my thirtieth birthday, I realized I wanted to celebrate with a significant cause that would create a legacy instead of celebrating without a cause. I selected to campaign towards the research development of those affected by Kidney Disease. The Mississippi Kidney Foundation works to improve the quality of life for individuals affected by Kidney Disease in Mississippi.
On Saturday, March 14, 2020, I hosted a Black Tie Gala with a Silent Auction to join the movement awareness of Kidney Disease. My celebration was an illustration of continuous movement in the third decade of my life, but more importantly a surge of efforts towards the awareness and research development of those affected by Kidney Disease.
The night began with photo opportunities along the red carpet with FulloFlava Photography that led to the silent auction. The auction displayed phenomenal pieces of artwork by some of Jackson, Mississippi’s own artists to include Ms. Jessica Brown of APaintersThoughts and Mr. Chuckway Washington of FulloFlave Photography. Immediately following, cocktail hour sponsored by Tito’s Homemade Vodka accompanied with live music preceded a delectable meal and the fundraiser program. The event was hosted by Mr. Terryal Thomas with DJ Java providing an array of sounds on the turntable. Ms. LaToiya Beard and I addressed Kidney Disease awareness and the importance of fundraising for those affected.
Many came out to support the 6th Annual Creating Change Campaign. I would like to thank our sponsors Tito’s Homemade Vodka, JAMAA Inc., Kency Medical Services PLLC, Code Grey Fitness, Elliott Law Group, Privileged, as well as all individuals and other organizations involved in assisting with the Gala. Lastly, I would like to give a special thanks to every person who attended the Gala. I am still overwhelmed with the success of the event. Thank you for joining me in efforts to support this great movement within the Kidney Disease community. It gives me great pleasure to continue my mission and legacy of giving back annually through the Creating Change Campaign. I look forward to seeing all my supporters and more at the 7th Annual event as we campaign on creating awareness for the behalf of those affected by Prostate Cancer. Look for more great things to come in the future.
