The 10th edition of Ludacris’ annual fundraising event, “LudaDay Weekend,” brought out fellow stars, local business leaders and politicians on Labor Day weekend.
The Atlanta rapper, who turns 38 on Sept. 11th, kicked off the festivities on Thursday, Sept. 3rd with a celebrity bowling match at BowlMor Lanes in Atlanta, where Usher, Gabrielle Union and David Banner were among the participants. The following evening, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed was among the guests at Luda’s private “Red Napkin” dinner, held at the Coca-Cola headquarters.
The party continued on Saturday, with a block party and concert at Clark Atlanta University, and a late night party at Atlanta nightclub Compound. Finally on Sunday, Sept. 6th, there was a celebrity basketball game at Georgia State University, where Luda’s team narrowly defeated a team led by rapper Chris Brown 121 to 117. An after-game shindig was held at the Gold Room in Buckhead.
The LudaDay Weekend events raise money for assorted Atlanta community charities. Last year’s weekend raised over $200,000.
