Jennifer and her sister Julia will host a dinner on Julian’s birthday, August 14, to further raise funds for the charity, which benefits underprivileged children in the Chicago area.
In October 2008, Hudson’s 57-year-old mother, Darnell Donnerson, and 29-year-old brother, Jason, were found shot to death inside the Chicago home Donnerson shared with Hudson’s elder sister, Julia. An AMBER Alert was issued for 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, who was later found dead. Chicago police arrested William Balfour, 27, the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister Julia the same day.
Balfour, has since been convicted of the murders.
