“On behalf of The LoveLife Foundation, we would like to thank my peers for volunteering their time and talent to reach back and pull forward. This effort is truly a labor of love as we seek to help others through service: from scholarships to deserving students to domestic violence survivor outreach to coat/toy donations to feeding the homeless, this helps others help themselves. Thank you to the fans for the outpour of love and support. We look forward to 2018.”–Raheem DeVaughn
