This year's 100th Birthday Tribute was sanctioned by the Estate of Aaron "T-Bone" Walker.  The Estate of Aaron Walker, Sr. is managed by T-Bone Walker's daughter, Bernita R. Walker. 

Ms. Walker commits the financial benefits derived from her father's creative property to the foundation she established in 1995, Project: PeaceMakers, Inc.  Project: PeaceMakers, Inc. addresses domestic/family violence through prevention education and intervention services, using a coordinated community response approach to break the cycle of violence in the home and in the community. 

The organization is a non-profit public benefit corporation founded to counteract the lack of public knowledge concerning the dynamics of domestic/family violence and its influences on each of us.
