Miami, FL - (Sunday, October 14, 2018) – Yesterday, Asahd Tuck Khaled, the first born child of music-mogul DJ Khaled and the most viral baby on the internet, hosted a party at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida to celebrate his 2nd birthday with over 250 youth from various community organizations in attendance and notable celebrities like Angela Simmons, Yo Gotti, TJ Wright, from The Hate You Give film, and more! Not only was this an epic celebration for the toddler mogul’s birthday, but a means of launching Asahd’s first charitable initiative, a program of the WE THE BEST Foundation, which focuses on enriching the lives of the next generation from childhood to adulthood. Asahd’s initiative will be carried out by giving grants to charities and people around the country, with the city of Miami as a major focus and primary market for the foundation. Asahd enjoyed his special day at Marlins Park and was presented a $100,000 check by CEO Derek Jeter on behalf of the Marlins and $10,000 from Cybex, a stroller company. Various community groups joined his family including members of the the Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade and Broward County. Liberty Academy Daycare Center, Connecting Families, Voices 4 Children, and Kensington Park Elementary were also among the community groups at the event who participated in a special Asahd Khaled Brand Jordan Collection fashion show. Guests experienced carnival rides, games, music and great food during the event while additional sponsors included Marlins, Kathy Romero, Kids Foot Locker, Haddad, The Confluent Group, Beats by Dre, Lyft, Brand Jordan, Cybex, Oda Creative, and FINGALICKING. About We The Best Foundation: We The Best Foundation is a 501c3 organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the next generation – from childhood to adulthood.
