Future and the Free Wishes Foundation recently held their 7th annual Golden Wishes Gala at the Georgia Aquarium in downtown Atlanta.

During the event, over 600 senior citizens experienced a night of excellence where they were treated with dinner, a gift card from a local grocery store, and live entertainment.

The Free Wishes Foundation is headed by Future’s mother Stephanie Jester and his sister,  Tia Anderson. The foundation honors Jester’s late grandmother Ruby Neil Gates.

During the event, Future shared his thoughts on sponsoring a special night for senior citizens.

“It feels good to take time to give back,” Future shared with this publication. “It feels good to see smiles on other people’s faces and see others enjoy themselves. It’s always about making other people happy. Every day I get catered to, so it’s about catering to others who deserves it.”

Jester also shared why it has always been important for Future to give back to the community.

“This shows what has been instilled in my children,” Jester said. “I’ve always taught my kids to give back at an early age. This is just apart of him.”

The Free Wishes Foundation will also host their annual Christmas toy drive in December in the Kirkwood community in East Atlanta.
