Cash Money Records Co-CEOs and founders Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Birdman” Williams have never forgotten their roots in the projects of New Orleans. Even before they achieved massive success with artists like Lil Wayne, Kevin Rudolf, Drake and Jay Sean, they were giving back to the community in their hometown, and this year will be no different. The brothers will once again host their 13th Annual Turkey Giveaway, on the Tuesday, November 24th at Taylor Park, from 2:00 -5:00 p.m., where they will hand out between 1,400 — 1,600 birds.
The giveaway is meant to provide some holiday cheer to those less fortunate, especially those who have been affected in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The Williams brothers have set up a number of philanthropic organizations in the memory of their parents, as part of the Johnny and Gladys Williams Foundation including the Cash Money for Kids program; which rewards local students for their academic performance with free tickets to a New Orleans Hornet home game.
