An Evening with Michael Jai White

I recently had the pleasure of attending a fundraising event for The Ralphola Taylor Community Center YMCA.  The event was An Evening with Michael Jai White.  It was great to see the multi-talented actor, writer and director Michael Jai White back in our hometown of Bridgeport, Conn. to help raise money for the local community center where he spent much of his time as a youth.

The evening was filled with music, food and entertainment supplied by the RTCC YMCA Dance Ensemble.  The highlight of the evening was when Michael began sharing stories of how important the Community Center and the staff were in helping to shape him into the man that he is today.  He also stressed the importance of having The Ralphola Taylor Community Center YMCA open to the future youths of Bridgeport.
