Honorary Breakfast for the memory of Kesean Williams

THE CALL

kesean

On behalf of Trustee David Green, The FREE for ALL Foundation, Kerry-Lee Crawford and the Tha LOVE Project family we request your support in attending a honorary breakfast for Kesean Williams.

On Jan 24th, 2013 9 year old Kesean was tragically killed from a bullet to his head while sitting in his living room watching TV.  Kesean loved basketball, dancing, making people laugh, French and was a promising athlete; yet within a short few minutes that bullet stole his future.

On May 25th, 2013 the community will gather for a memorial breakfast to honour Kesean’s memory and his surviving Mother Tanya and Brother Kajan .  Your support is needed as we stand strong with one voice and put a stop to this violence that is happening in our own communities.

Tickets: only $25 limited seating available.
100% of all proceeds will go towards “The Kesean Williams FUND” to keep His Legacy Alive.

Date: May 25th, 2015
Time: 9am. Breakfast ceremony will begin right on schedule.
Location: David Suzuki Secondary School 45 Daviselm Dr, Brampton L6X 0E6
RSVP: by May 19th, 2013 to emailaudrey@thespaatglenerin.com

Excerpt:

“They say it takes a community to raise a child.  We don’t have the chance to raise Kesean anymore, but we have the opportunity to support his family in moving through terrible grief,” said Hazel Mason, superintendent of the education for the Peel District School Board.

The aim of the event was also to raise awareness of the impact of crime in the community, Green said, “My hope is not only that the legacy of this young boy will live on, but that we all come out and stand up against crime and violence in our community. ”

Any array of support opportunities, community initiatives, funding and partnership opportunities evolved coordinating the fundraising breakfast event, in the form of;

  • Community Information sessions and workshops
    • Partnered with Peel Police and Safe City
    • Media Press Conference
    • Partnering with Ardglen Community in opening a community youth Centre
    • Scholarship in honour of Kesean Williams
    • Summer Basketball camp in his honour of Kesean Williams
    • Support, resources and financial assistance to the family
