About the event
“Don’t let nothing come between you and your creation.” One of Shar’s sayings that stick with me. He was intentional about everything he did, and that includes creating long-lasting relationships. As we speak to members of the community, they light up when they speak about him. The light is not just because he is someone famous that they know, but that he is someone with whom they had a bond. He sowed into the people he knew, and also into the lives of those whom he met. He gave of himself because he was familiar with the desire to accomplish something. He often pushed his friends beyond their comfort zone, because he wanted to inspire them to work towards and manifest their dreams; shoot for the stars, aim for the moon. It is in this spirit that we operate, as we gather to celebrate and give.
It is for this reason, we are hosting our first annual Canarsie Honors. It serves as a means for friends and community to gather and acknowledge those among us who have made our lives easier and have inspired us to excellence. In service to our core values of sacred space, education, love and family (SELF), we have partnered with Bayview Community Center to create a space for our young people where learning and fun can take place, with our merchants associations to build and strengthen community relationships, as well as with community organizers to help us identify specific needs in the community.
Our mission is to transform the lives of young people through creative engagement and education, along with giving them access to positive inspirational experiences. We invite you to join us with your contribution.
