EMMIS/NEW YORK GM DEON LEVINGSTON commented, "EMMIS/NY is committed to giving back to our fans and the community. With brands like HOT 97, WBLS, and WLIB so embedded in the daily lives of our listeners, it’s simply not enough to just run PSAs and attend community events. Big brands must, and should, do more to give back to their audience."
LEVINGSTON continued saying "LIFT ‘EM UP is our event where we can really interact with deserving families, and provide them with a meaningful experience with our brands. Families are able to enjoy a warm meal, listen to some first class entertainment, and overall, enjoy a carefree night out with their loved ones."
