At the annual Dae Dae World Weekend, held Sept. 26-27, members of the Cotillion Board announced that the Dajae Coleman Foundation, DC3F, would be the beneficiary of this year’s Cotillion. Dajae was 14 when he was shot and killed, just weeks after entering Evanston Township High School as a freshman. Since this year would have been his senior year, the Cotillion Board decided to honor him with the gift to the Foundation.
