The Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Foundation along with Grammy Award-Winner Jahlil Beats, hosted a two-day weekend event to give Chester residents a glimpse of hope amid the pandemic. The two-day weekend consisted of a bowling party on Friday where they loaded up a bus of young folks to enjoy bowling, arcade games, and pizza. On Saturday they pulled off an outdoor party at Ethel Waters Park.
Recognizing that the ongoing pandemic have left many people in need of assistance and hope, Mr. Hollis-Jefferson decided it was time to do something instead of just sitting back and letting things get worse.
In partnership with the RHJ Foundation, local business leaders & organizations donated food and clothing to the teens. In addition, COVID-19 testing was available to eligible residents.
I stopped by on Saturday at Ethel Waters Park where people of all generations gathered to meet and mingle as the party atmosphere was in full effect with DJs blasting the latest tunes and young folks taking turns on the mic showing off their skills. Even Rondae belted out a little rap.
