Antwan “Big Boi” Patton‘s Big Kidz Foundation held its 5th annual Holiday celebration at Atlanta’s historic Cyclorama on December 14, 2011.
There was also a performance by Gabbie Rea of Purple Ribbon Kidz and lots of fun for Big Kidz and grown kids alike.
As usual, it was a celebration filled with family, friends and entertainment from all of Big’s Kidz…

Big Boi’s Big Kidz Foundation has a mission to expose kids to the arts at an early age. Through after school programs and initiatives, the foundation encourages students to think outside the box (and outside of the comfort of their neighborhoods) and pushes them to explore the world, become great speakers, learn entrepreneurship, and hone their talents.
