Today’s event was rained out but there was still joy and laughter in the VIP room of Boris Kodjoe’s Tennis Family Fun Night. Sponsored by FedEx, Cami Cakes, Centric, V-103 and Ryan Cameron; today’s event is raising funds for Sophie’s Voice Foundation. This foundation was founded by Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker in honor of their daughter Sophie that was diagnosed with Spina Bifida at birth. From their website: (Sophie’s Voice Foundation)
Our Key Focus Areas are:
- Prevention of Neural tube birth defects through folic acid fortification and supplementation
- Broadening access to medical care and supplies to families in developing countries.
- Delivering integrated health and wellness programs and content to multicultural communities.
Although today’s event was rained out, many celebrities such as Frank Ski (former on-air personality for V-103), Cynthia Bailey of Atlanta Housewives, and the Atlanta Youth Ensemble came to show their support. Food was excellent and the cupcakes from Cami Cakes were divine.
From Boris Kodjoe & Nicole Ari Parker
Thank you for taking time to come out to today’s event. We are sorry that we are rained out. We are holding events such as this one around the country to raise funds to assist us in ending Spina Bifida within the next 10 years. How do you ask? Well, we are currently working to get folic acid added to flour that can be used world wide. So please, purchase a t-shirt, donate or go online to support.
The Rich International Media Group will keep you informed on when the next event for Sophie’s Foundation will be.
