Ludacris and Harley-Davidson raise money for children
Multi-platinum rapper/actor Ludacris, The Ludacris Foundation, Harley-Davidson and Disturbing Tha Peace Records are hosting a Christmas party for approximately 100 children, ages 6 to 14 years old. The party will take place on Saturday, Dec. 16, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Adamsville Recreation Center in Atlanta. Children attending the party will be visited by Santa and treated with games, entertainment, and great food.
"The Christmas season is all about finding joy in making others happy," said Ludacris. "We give to loved ones and others that are less fortunate than ourselves. This is done without hesitation and this is who and what we are all about. During the holidays there is no greater gift than the ’gift of giving’ and putting smiles on the faces of kids."
The Christmas Party is a part of the Foundation’s Luda Cares Initiative. The Luda Cares Initiative is dedicated to supporting kids and families in need during the holiday season by providing food, toys and surprise visits.
The Ludacris Foundation and Harley-Davidson are also hosting a tailgate party at the Georgia Dome during the Atlanta Falcons versus Dallas Cowboys football game on Saturday, Dec. 16, 2006 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. During the party, Harley-Davidson will have motorcycles on display and will provide guests with giveaways. Local radio station HOT 107.9 will also be giving out game tickets and other prizes. Music and food will be provided and everyone is welcome to join the festivities. Ludacris is scheduled to perform during the half time show.
Harley-Davidson is also donating a 2007 FLSTF Fat Boy motorcycle to The Ludacris Foundation which will be auctioned off on eBay. The motorcycle will first tour around the country gaining celebrity autographs along the way. One stop will include the Atlanta Falcons tailgate party, and then the motorcycle will be shipped to Las Vegas for the 2007 NBA All-Star Game.
