Future and Son Spread Holiday Cheer at ‘Winter Wishland’ Event

It looks like there’s more than one Santa in Atlanta.

While Gucci Mane dropped The Return of East Atlanta Santa last week, Future played the role of St. Nick at the 4th annual FreeWishes Foundation’s “Winter Wishland” event in his hometown on Sunday (Dec. 18).

Hendrix was accompanied at the celebration by his mother Stephanie Jester, who runs Free Wishes, and by his sons Future Zahir and Jakobi Wilburn. Together, they celebrated the holidays with youth (ages 2-18) from the local Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta.

Guests were able to take pictures with Santa, and they didn’t go home empty handed. There were stacks of Reebok sneakers, ready to be presented to guests. Ford also presented a colorful Atlanta tribute mural at Bessie Branham Park that Future held up proudly.

“It means so much to be able to give back to the community that raised Future, and for Ford to support our vision of keeping art and dreams alive with the installation of this art, speaks volumes as it relates to our overall goal,” said Jester.

Future continues to give back. For Thanksgiving last month, he and his FreeWishes Foundation hosted the 4th annual Golden Wishes Thanksgiving Gala for senior citizens.
