Cedric The Entertainer: “My Mom Inspired Me To Give Back”

The funny, down-to-earth actor/comedian Cedric the Entertainer has been making audiences laugh for years.  Whether it be on the Kings of Comedy, as a host or on various sitcoms, Cedric brings his unique brand of humor based in his love for his family and upbringing in St. Louis. It is because of that love for family that Cedric announced plans for “A Night with Cedric and Friends” — his inaugural event supporting a future women’s health pavilion at SSM St. Mary’s Health Center.

Proceeds from the gala will support the pavilion, which will be named after his mother, Rosetta Boyce Kyles, a cancer patient at SSM St. Mary’s.

“A Night with Cedric and Friends” will be held October 25, 2014, at the Peabody Opera House in downtown St. Louis. David Steward, chairman and founder of World Wide Technology Inc., will serve as co-chair of the event, along with his wife, Thelma. The event will feature Cedric’s celebrity friends as entertainment.
