In order to meet such a great demand, OTWMG found that it had to find other creative means to raise funds so that it could continue to accomplish its mission. “We are grateful to our sponsors: Former Lakers Assistant Coach Jim Cleamons, The Hester Group, Wal-Mart, Ted Britt Automotive-Chantilly, Sanametrix, Inc., and others who wish to remain anonymous,” stated Mrs. Marlene Thomas, Chairperson of the Board of Directors for OTWMG. “Without their generous donations, this event could not take place.”
World renowned group Common Ground will accompany jazz singers Brenda Pinkelton, Alfreder Gardner, Moni.Arai, Jessica Moore and Cleve Battle. These talented five will sing their rendition of songs like Good Morning Headache, Betcha By Golly Wow, My Funny Valentine, I Can’t Make You Love Me, and Summertimeto name a few. Quest deejay, Willie Taylor, will provide Motown sounds for listening and dancing.
