Yo Gotti, NBA Great Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway And The Boys & Girls Club of Memphis Brings Christmas Spirit With 3rd Annual "Yo Gotti Christmas Carnival"
On Monday, December 22, artist and entrepreneur Yo Gotti and CMG Entertainment will spread the holiday cheer to underprivileged kids and families in his native Memphis with the 3rd Annual "Yo Gotti Christmas Carnival." Set to take place at a secret location, the Christmas Carnival will bring an afternoon of fun for hundreds of kids, complete with all the carnival favorites: face painting, bouncing houses, merry-go-rounds, cotton candy and funnel cake. Yo Gotti and CMG has partnered up to bring joy over the holidays with Memphis native and NBA great, Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Memphis, who will be bringing 250-300 of their members to the event.
The Christmas Carnival is the third incarnation of the "Yo Gotti Christmas" initiative started by the rapper in 2012. In previous years, Gotti has personally delivered presents and necessities to families in need around the city. This year, he will once again partner with Hot 107.1 FM to grant specific wishes to a few of the station's listeners. Beyond the radio contest, Yo Gotti will also give away coats and toys to children at the Christmas Carnival.
Hot 107.1's "Christmas Wish List" contest invites listeners to submit an essay online at http://www.hot1071.com/gotti-christmasexplaining why their family is in need of some extra assistance this holiday season. The winners will receive a Christmas shopping spree, courtesy of Yo Gotti and the CMG family. Yo Gotti and Hot 107.1 will also be giving away bicycles during the Christmas Carnival.
"They say you're blessed to be a blessing to others," says Yo Gotti. "There's no better time to live that saying then the holidays. Especially when so many families are struggling. I'm just happy to be able to make a difference and at least take some of these kids out of the struggle for an afternoon."
