(10/3/2010)Â T.I. and his Â wife Tiny held a luncheon at Luckie Lounge in AtlantaÂ for honorees of their “For the Love of Our Fathers” foundation, a charity that addresses the issue of the increased rate of Alzheimer’s in the African American community and the absence rate of victims receiving proper treatment for their illness. Tiny’s father – a founding member of the R&B group The Tams – suffers fromÂ the effects of the crippling disease, while T.I.’s fatherÂ life relinquishedÂ as a result of this disease.
However, T.I.Â brings awareness and his legacy lives. Â TheÂ luncheon agendaÂ included Dr. Patrick A. Griffith, a member of the Division of Neurology Chief at Morehouse School of Medicine and the Community Alzheimerâ€™s Advocate Tena S. Walker, and Sister 2 Sister Magazine editor Jamie Foster Brown as speakers. Â The OMG Girlz and QT JazzÂ Guests performed. T.I. and Tiny are supported by many. Andrew Young, Â Rasheeda, Kandi, and many moreÂ were there . For more information visit http://www.fortheloveofourfathers.org/ .
