New Orleans, LA, June 14, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The much anticipated "HOPE Summer Jam" begins with the collaborative efforts of New Orleans Entertainment CEO and Philanthropist Michael Willis along with, New Orleans Saints Hall of Famer Tyrone Hughes, both of whom are New Orleans natives have come together with a shared belief and goal of bettering the Greater New Orleans area by making a commitment to HOPE (Helping Other People Endure).
Having grown up in rough neighborhoods, Willis, and Hughes understand well the obstacles that families face and the stagnation that young people experience while growing up in less than ideal situations. Having overcome the same obstacles that those that they have committed to help, Willis and Hughes embrace the philosophy that philanthropy is more impactful and communities are made stronger when those for whom have overcome adversity, are actively engaged in the uplifting of those that often feel disenfranchised in their various communities.
When asked why the success of events such as the "HOPE Summer Jam" which will be held on July 8, at Berhman Stadium was so important, Willis stated: "The success of Summer Jam is important because outside of its production cost, proceeds from the event will go towards the development of programs that foster positive change and provide our children with the opportunity to live up to their full potential. The success of this event will also show that when business leaders, community groups and philanthropist partner, we are truly giving our fellow citizens HOPE."
