Ray “Johnny” Reid Needs Our Support

Posted on by Stefanie in Blog Post, Events, Updates | Leave a comment

Bailey’s Cafe’s Emergency Health Care Fund is accepting donations to aid Ray Reid,

an original member of the “Crown Heights Affair,” in his fight against cancer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crown Heights Affair is an R&B Group that originated in Brooklyn back in the 70′s. They have a catalog of music to their credit including: “Dreamin a Dream,” “Dancin,” “SureShot” and “Say a Prayer for You,” just to name a few.

In addition, Ray is a song writer and producer having produced and written songs for artists such as:
France Joli
Amii Stewart
Unlimited Touch
Enchantment
Audrey Wheeler
Darnell Williams
Taana Gardner

As an avid educator, Ray has worked throughout his life to teach music and performance to children and young adults.

Many in the music world are aware that Ray Reid is currently challenged by cancer.  Bailey’s Board member, Rodney Rahim Deas, a dear friend of Ray’s, started this campaign to assist Ray in his time of need.  All donations will serve to offset Ray’s medical costs.

Precious Pearls at Bed-Stuy Live, October 6, 2012

Posted on by Stefanie in Events | Leave a comment

It was easy to find Bailey’s Cafe’s table at the Bed-Stuy Live event on Saturday, October 6th.  As soon as we started our painting activity, turning a rock into an object that expresses an aspect of you or painting on paper, we were surrounded by artists of all ages, looking for outlets for self-expression.  Painting is just one of the fun activities that takes place at our Precious Pearls program.  Check out the Projects page to learn more about the program and consider making a donation to keep our programs expanding.
