EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97)/NEW YORK has announced the return of its night of service and inspiration: LIFT 'EM UP.
In 2013, LIFT 'EM UP provided those less fortunate a first class experience and dignified evening of gourmet food and holiday entertainment. The motivation was simple: to uplift others and provide the community an extraordinary evening, full of food, festivities, and fun!
This year, HOT 97’s HIP HOP HAS HEART FOUNDATION and INCITE, EMMIS' cause marketing division, will host 150 people, invited by local churches and community representatives, for the second annual LIFT 'EM UP celebration on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20 in QUEENS, NY. The event will include a special visit from Hip Hop artist MAINO and R&B singer JUSTINE SKYE, gourmet food provided by TWO FISH AND FIVE LOAVES, music by HOT 97’s legendary DJs, and the return of the HOLIDAY MARKET, where families will be able to take home food for the own THANKSGIVING meals the following week.
HIP HOP HAS HEART FOUNDATION Pres. KOREN VAUGHAN commented, "The HIP HOP HAS HEART FOUNDATION has led the way in assisting the Hip Hop community, and LIFT 'EM UP is a wonderful way to give back during the holidays. Together with INCITE, which uses entertainment to connect brands, we hope to bring many deserving families some holiday cheer!"
