An annual Christmas event was held Saturday at a South Side church in honor of the late Julian King, the 7-year-old nephew of singer and actress Jennifer Hudson. Julian was killed along with his grandmother and uncle earlier this year. William Balfour, Hudson's brother-in-law, is charged in the murders.

Saturday's event was held at Pleasant Gift church's third annual "Gift of Giving" for youth in need. Organizers distributed toys to boys and girls in Julian's memory.
