On August 30, 2015

On August 22, 2015, I was honored to volunteer the services of J Squared Events: Planning & Design for a charity event benefiting Athletes vs. Cancer, an amazing foundation started by Memphis Grizzlies star, Matt Barnes, in honor of his beautiful mother, Ann Catherine Barnes.

We look forward to a continued relationship with this organization.
