Kid’s Aspiring to Dream Upcoming Gala Event
Thanks to everyone that attended, sent blessings, donations and supported the Kids Aspiring to Dream Gala event that took place this past evening in my hometown of Tyler, Tx.
I share a deep appreciation to Doris Batson’s vision for KATD and to the members, staff, committee members and volunteers of this organization, for the work they are doing in the community with the young people.
I was extremely humbled and honored to be one of the honorees for the event. I also felt like a kid again sharing the stage with one of my sports heroes, the “Tyler Rose” himself NFL Pro Football Hall of Famer Earl Campbell along with the other distinguished honorees such as Dalila Reynoso and Dr. Michael Tidwell as well.
The performances from the talented young people was very heartfelt and inspiring. The band man shut the house down with his range of songs and blowing that saxophone.
I cannot say thank you enough to the Co-Chairs Angela Lee and Stephen Hubbard for having myself and the other honorees recognized for doing a service for others in all walks of life.
To have my Wife and daughters, Parents, Uncle Marvin, my Class of 86 classmates Tammy Wilkerson, Dee Jones, Dr. Angela Smith, neighborhood brother Kirk Adams and frat brother Terry Sylvester in attendance was priceless and I’m forever grateful that you all was by my side. For those that couldn’t make it out, thanks again for the prayers, the phone calls, texts and well wishes.
