4th Annual 12th District Ball

It may have been the 4th annual 12th District Ball, but it almost was a no show for the First Lady of the 12th Council District. First Lady Neva Shillingford-King was recently in the hospital, and a sad Councilman Andy King said that this would be the first time the First Lady of the 12th Council district would not be in attendance.

Councilman King’s despair turned to joy when the first Lady of the 12th Council District showed up. He escorted her to her seat, and the show continued. Leyla Capers who plays Young Nala in the Lion King gave a tremendous¬†singing performance, Emcee Sha Rock and Councilman King took turns calling up the Honorees, then there was another musical performance. It seemed like Councilman Kings favorite saying “People Pay Attention to Those Who Participate” was on display.
