Yatooma’s Foundation for the Kids’ Cruisin’ View
The nearly 200 people who chose to watch the Dream Cruise action from the dry and air conditioned comfort of the Bank of Birmingham lobby made a good call. They could sip, sup and watch the cruisers through the floor to ceiling windows and via the roof-mounted cam to the beat of rocking oldies music played by a DJ. Steve Owen clowned around making balloon creations for the kids in the crowd, which included Kim Newberry’s three children. Newberry, a former foundation recipient, is now on the advisory board of the organization that helps families who have lost a parent turn the tragedy to triumph. The event collected $3,000 in donations for the foundation.
