Party for Gemi Men

Please donate here to support a joyous memorial celebration to honor our Beloved Ancestor Gemi Men (Iyabode, Cheryl Taylor) who made her transition in 1992. The embodiment of grace, love and kindness, Gemi’s beauty, fabulous style and her love of life and people will long be remembered. This private event is for those who knew and loved Iyabode, so targeted, but not public, sharing is encouraged and appreciated.

Funds are needed as soon as possible to help cover expenses, including food, beverages, DJ, venue security (required), decorating, etc. Whatever you can contribute to making this a wonderful and memorable event would be greatly appreciated. Donate via the link below and please share it with others who knew Gemi Men. You may think of someone whom we haven't, who might like to be there and support as well. 

Thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you there!
