Rapper Ludacris is set to be honored for his philanthropic efforts at the Big "O" Youth Educational Dream Foundation's bi-annual fundraising gala in November.

An Evening of Respect will highlight the musician's efforts, along with those of NASCAR driver Kyle Perry and his wife, Pattie, all of whom work to raise funds and awareness for music and arts programs for children.

The benefit, to be held in Atlanta on Nov. 5, will also feature a concert with to-be-announced performers.

The Big "O" Youth Educational Dream Foundation, founded in 2007, honors the memory of the late R&B crooner Otis Redding and was founded by his wife and children to provide youth music and arts programs.
