Being a member and avid supporter of the NAMI, I am happy to say that this is something that is dear to my heart. I had a cousin who along with my mother and grandmother helped raised me back in the day. His name is Louvelle Matthews and I loved him like his was a father to me. I remember him taking the time to play with me when I was a little kid and also was very influential to my current career in music.

This is another reason why the Nami Walks is a great event for the entire community to come out and support a great cause. I will be at the walk and I am calling on all of my friends to join my team or come out and create your own.

The event will happen at the Lake Charles Civic Center on Saturday May 20th with check in at 7 am and the walk beginning at 8:30 am. We are asking you to register and donate today. For more information contact Jessica Weaver at 337-433-0219.
