Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 05, 2013
Legendary lyricist, pioneer, and Hip Hop Sisters Foundation (HHSF) Founder / CEO MC Lyte and HHSF President Lynn Richardson kicked off the BET Experience weekend with a star-studded social to benefit MC Lyte’s non-profit charity, Hip Hop Sisters Foundation.
With this being her first soiree of the most highly anticipated weekend in Los Angeles, MC Lyte and Hip Hop Sisters Foundation superseded expectations. Celebrities and VIPs in attendance included Advisory Board Members Kelly Price, Kenny Lattimore, and Malcolm Jamal Warner, along with Kym Whitley, MC Smooth, D-Nice, and Sheila E, to name a few.
Approximately 300 tastemakers attended, including entertainment industry insiders, business executives, and community leaders, among others. In addition, the Ten-Ten Wilshire rooftop was tastefully transformed by event planners, Y.E.S. Productions..
MC Lyte gave a warm speech to welcome and thank her guests for their support. “Through the support we have received over the past year, Hip Hop Sisters Foundation has been able to touch the lives of our youth and empower them to take charge of their destiny. I would like to thank everyone for coming out to support us — including all of our sponsors and board members — and I extend a special thank you to YES Productions for making this happen,” Lyte said.
Lynn Richardson continued by sharing how the organization achieved it’s goals under MC Lyte’s leadership. “We met a little over a year ago, talked about what we wanted to accomplish, and soon after we were announcing $100,000 college scholarships on the Soul Train Music Awards red carpet and partnering with organizations like Hip Hop 4 Life and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority to help combat the negative effects of teen pregnancy, as well as the Thurgood Marshall Fund on the South African iLEAD tour from which we recently returned.”
In addition to enjoying the panoramic view of downtown Los Angeles, guests relaxed under the sun and mingled with some of Hollywood’s movers and shakers in the entertainment industry. The festivities included an open Ciroc Bar, food catered by Ladies Touch Catering, a MYX and Mingle Lounge and sounds by DJ Jahkova and celebrity guest dj, DJ Rebel.
Produced by Hip Hop Sisters Foundation and Y.E.S. Productions, event sponsors included Ciroc, The Wright Holistic Day Spa, MYX Fusion, Ladies Touch Catering, Nestle Waters, The Ice Cream Lab and Apixture Photo booth.
The gift bags were provided by Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps and included items by Shea Moisture, Hula Girl, MYX Fusions, The Wright Holistic Day Spa, Emeri Moscato, Lavish Beverages and Ten-Ten Wilshire.
