Cannon seen in national ad

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Sharp-eyed Times-Gazette readers might have seen a local face in Sunday's issue of Parade magazine, which is included in the print edition of the Times-Gazette and more than 500 other newspapers each week.

Calvin Cannon, whose program to provide prom tuxedoes to needy young men received a grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project, can be seen in a montage of grant recipients on the first page of a two-page Pepsi ad in the magazine. He's in the third photo on the top row.

Cannon's "Clothe The N.A.K.E.D. Prom Date" project appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" in May. N.A.K.E.D. is an acronym for "Nice And Kind Educated Dude."

Parade has a weekly circulation of 32.2 million.
