Last night, over 250 VIPs in business, philanthropy and entertainment gathered at Park 112 in Harlem for the second installment of REVOLT TV’s community initiative, “HELLO Harlem” – a summer series to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Harlem (BGCH). Businesses that were represented include JP Morgan & Chase, USA EEOC, Citibank, NYC Law Department, The City of New York, Universal Republic, VH-1, ABC Television and the National Action Network.
VIPs included Lew Tucker (Owner, Park 112), David Paterson (Former Governor of New York), Peter Thomas (Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta), Mr. Broadway (Furious Five/Hip Hop Pioneer), Nina Flowers (The Apollo), Ashley Ennis (ABC’s “The Chew”), Vaughn Mack (Bad Boy Entertainment), Hisham Tawfiq (NBC’s “The Blacklist”), Marc John Jeffries (“Losing Isaiah”/”Notorious”) and more.
Sponsored by AQUAhydrate, Sean John and Ciroc, and supported by Harlem Park to Park, the evening was hosted by Mike Houston, VP, Acct. Management for The Nelson Group, and featured remarks by Kai Wright, REVOLT TV VP of Communications who acknowledged special guests and encouraged donation support. REVOLT’s DJ Hannah Rad kept the crowd moving while spinning on the 1s & 2s, and soul artist and activist Maya Azucena gave an electrifying performance singing a medley of her songs including “Come With Me,” “Fearless,” “Black Butterfly” and “Dance Revolution.”
