Sunday Playday @ Mocha Lounge Caffee Lounge/ Fundraiser for C.W.A.V.

Thank you for everyone who came out to support & Black In The Bay (Keisha Pickett) & Children With A Vision (Tonya Lewis). I must say to Keisha, thank you for putting this fundraiser together for the 11th Annual Back To School Giveaway. I had the best time tonight among GROWN & MATURE adults. You he...ard laughter, music, and simply good people getting along. Tampa need more of these venues. Just real wholesome laughter. Thank you Mocha Lounge for a pleasant environment. You felt like you were at home. Keep up the good brothers ( Marvin and Melvin Coleman).

Meet & Greet Sponsors/w. Godson & Board Members

I took my Godson out to Meet a lot of the Title Sponsor who's been supporting Children With A Vision for over 10 years in this community. I need my Godson to see first hand what it takes to raise money to his community and Kids. You have John Amato from N-E- Where Transport on 40th & Mlk, who I can not thank enough. Crofton & Sons (Owner's of Uncle John Sausage). Rene Brown of Ladies Of The Sea. And you have Jason Sadberry from Fletcher Supermarket & Momma's Beauty Supply Store on Fletcher & 15th. We have to show kids money don't grow on trees. I teach my Godson, you have to have respect and integrity to go out to reach these Sponsors. We even had lunch with Mr. Amato and worker as well. Now he's sees first hand. To me, that's moral and value instilled in a growing youth today. That brings a smile to my face.
