Today’s Honoree is a patnership between L.J. Holloway and Derrick “Headlines” Hayes that gives both a chance to give back to others. L.J. and Derrick met on the Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage in 2008 and kept in touch saying that one day they would work together. L.J. called Derrick one day asking him to do some PR for her and immediately Derrick was inspired with the concept of Today’s Honoree as a way they both could make a difference in the lives of others. Please read 5 Strangers I Met At Lunch to see how Today’s Honoree really began.
