However, for his participation, Smokey Bones donated $5,000 to his charity of choice— The Boys & Girls Club of Broward County. “I chose to benefit The Boys & Girls of Broward County because it hits home. I grew up closely with the organization in Atlanta and they work to enable all young people, especially those in need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens,” says Kenyan. Smokey Bones’ CEO, Ryan Esko along children on behalf of the charity presented the check to Kenyan.
