2023 BOTHAM JEAN FOUNDATION GALA
Founded in 2018, the Botham Jean Foundation is a non-profit organization whose drive is to continue the work Botham Jean started before he was wrongfully murdered on Sept. 6, 2018, in his home in Dallas, TX. Some of his passions included giving back to his native Saint Lucian community by providing financial and emotional support to the Boys’ Training Center, Transit Home for Children, and the Marian Home for the Elderly. The foundation will also provide support to families impacted by police brutality as well as empowering our future generations in the form of scholarships and programs.
On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023, the Botham Jean Foundation will host its third annual Red Tie Event at the Renaissance Hotel in Dallas with an exciting formal “red tie” and red-carpet fundraising gala. On this day, we celebrate what would have been Botham’s birthday with approximately 500 people, including: Botham’s family members, friends, PwC colleagues, Harding University alum, Church of Christ members, community members, supporters, entertainers, and celebrities, will unite to celebrate his inspiring life and legacy.
From a very young age, Botham dedicated himself to helping people less fortunate than him. To “Be Like Bo” is more than a hashtag; it is symbolic of living an ambitious life centered around integrity, empathy, and compassion for all mankind.
“We are not alone as a community of believers, and I am comforted when I know I am not the only one doing something.”- BOTHAM SHEM JEAN
To help make the inaugural fundraising event and the missionary efforts of the foundation a success, the support and generosity of individuals and businesses will make a huge impact.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and support!
President, Botham Jean Foundation
