The TJ Martell Foundation will honor Warner Music Group executive VP Kevin Liles and his family March 2 at the 9th Annual Family Day fundraising event at the Jacob Javits Center in New York.

Along with being an avid participant in past TJ Martell Foundation events, Liles has helped underprivileged youth through his Make It Happen Foundation. He is also a board member of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HHSAN).

TJ Martell's Family Day event raises money for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research. It drew more than 1,200 people in 2007 and has raised more than $1 million since its inception.

"No matter what community you live in, no matter where you turn, AIDS, cancer and leukemia have affected every ethnic group, race and religion," said Liles. "It is not only my honor to be recognized by the TJ Martell Foundation, it is my responsibility to serve in any capacity necessary to raise awareness of these life-threatening diseases."

Previous Family Day honorees have included such music industry leaders as Monte and Avery Lipman, Steve Greenberg, Daniel Glass, Julie Swidler and Rick Krim.
