The Cause

to benefit Dajae Coleman Foundation

Event proceeds benefit Dajae Coleman Foundation (DC3F), a non-profit, community-based organization founded in 2013 to honor the legacy of Dajae A. Coleman, an exceptional young man who was shot and killed when he was only 14. DC3F offers programs that motivate youth and instill positive values that help to guide them.
