As reported by us a few months ago here are the details again:
Notorious B.I.G's charity foundation will honour the mother's of late rap and R'n'B stars in a black-tie gala event in New York on March 11.
The event dubbed The B.I.G.

Appearing on the night will be P. Diddy, Jay-Z, Wyclef Jean, Run-DMC and Biggie's wife Faith Evans.
March 2003 marks the sixth year remembrance of the passing of the late Notorious B.I.G. He was shot to death on March 9, 1997.
CWMF celebrates the spirit of all he was and still is during A B.I.G. Night Out. The event provides an annual moment to commemorate a person and talent who remains a symbol of progress taken for granted.
The event will take place March 11 at Metropolitan Pavilion, 110 W.19th Street, (Between 6th and 7th), New York, NY 10011. Tickets are $US 250.
