On December 15, Shoe City kicked off their "Kicks For Kids" Charity Concert at Howard Theatre. The show was full of guests, including Black Cobain, Freeway and surprise guest Neef (from the duo Chris & Neef - Roc-a-Fella). He hit the stage with Black Alley and closed out the show with special guest performances by Fattrel & Tracy T of MMG. Mayor Vincent Gray also surprised concertgoers and addressed the crowd to talk about our community efforts. He shared the stage with a representative from each partnering charity organization: Safe Shores (#SantaCause), SashaBruce House, and the Jr. Board of Administration. Each nonprofit received $1000 worth of brand new sneakers for the kids in their program.
