Eric Coleman's Family & Friends Day

Hello Friends and Family:

I'm back again asking for your support of the 3rd Annual Family and Friends Day in honor of my late husband, Eric Andre Coleman. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, September 9th from 1-6pm at the Willson Woods Park in Mount Vernon.

My husband was a paraprofessional at the Edward Williams Elementary School.  He loved working with children.  He was also barber who supported his community by annually giving free back- to- school haircuts.   Every year since his untimely passing in August 2015, I strive to continue his goodwill.  And with your support, I will be able to do so again this year.

I will use your contribution to provide haircut vouchers, backpacks and school supplies to the children in my community. Additional proceeds will be used to support the 6 hours of food and entertainment on September 9th at the Willson Woods Park.

Because of the generous support that I received last year, I was able to provide 70 backpacks filled with school supplies and 30 vouchers for free haircuts at a local barbershop. The children were entertained by a clown and a magician with a rabbit, as well as face painting and other games. The NBA player Kevin Jones was in attendance and autographed pictures.   And lastly, Channel 12 news stopped by and provided media coverage for the event.

As always, I greatly appreciate your continued support.
