GA, Columbus. 21 April 2015—Sunday in Columbus Georgia, Cleopatra Vaughn, Founder of Judge Not Inc., hosted her first ever Community Hoops Championship basketball game to raise awareness and funds for her non-profit organization. Judge Not Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to empowering the lives of previously incarcerated parents, their children and ultimately, their communities. This tournament, which was held at the Columbus State University Woodruff Gym, was a perfect way for members of the community to come together for exciting, safe recreational fun and raise funds for a good cause.
DJ Remy was on the 1’s and 2’s getting the crowd hype before the game began. Local basketball teams UPT and LEP faced off for the game with UPT coming out on top with a leading score of 70-66. Two talented youth dancers performed a choreographed routine at half-time, which the crowd enjoyed. “I am so thankful for all of the community members that attended my first charitable basketball event. Judge Not Inc is a platform for all children and families seeking a way to come together when they are unfortunately separated. I would like to thank both teams for their efforts, and I am looking forward to my second tournament,” Cleopatra states.
Judge Not Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to empowering the lives of previously incarcerated parents, their children and ultimately, their communities. We provide children with educational and recreational activities needed to foster positive relationships with their incarcerated parents and rebuilding their self esteem.

Non-Profit Judge Not Inc Hosts First-Ever ‘Who Inspires You’ Teen Red Carpet Event
Columbus, Ga/ June 1, 2015--- Last Thursday in Columbus, Ga, non-profit Judge Not Inc. presented their first ever teen mixer entitled ‘Who Inspires You’. This event, held at the historic Liberty Theater, was created for youth in the area to dress as their inspiration and have a safe and fun environment to socialize in. As guests approached the notable theater, they were greeted with a red carpet, photographers and a searchlight, giving the kids the true ‘”celebrity” feel. As they made their way inside for photo opportunities, they were asked to share who their inspiration was and why.
The children quickly filed in to the main area, to snack on the pizza and frozen yogurt provided by Chill Yogurt & Pizzeria along with the branded cookies with the Judge Not logo and inspirational quotes provided by Carabella Designs. The DJ played all the latest hits that had the kids dancing, laughing and enjoying themselves throughout the night. As the night concluded, Judge Not Inc’s founder, Cleopatra Vaughn, selected the costume winner for the ‘Who Inspires You’ costume contest. Many children were in the running, including Kelly Rowland, TLC, and rap artist Young Dro, however, it was the French Montana costume that won the cash prize. “I am very pleased that the children enjoyed themselves at this event. Our non-profit will continue to bring safe, fun and educational activities for the youth to participate in which ultimately affects the community in a positive way. We are hopeful that these types of activities will continue to raise awareness of our foundation and how the people of the community can come on board and assist”, Cleopatra states.
Judge Not Inc will like to thank all sponsors and donors for making this event a success including but not limited to: Abercrombie Bonding, Chill Yogurt & Pizzeria, Carabella Designs and Wolf Entertainment.
