Recently, Team Epiphany concluded it¹s 7th annual #SUMMERFRIDAYS events series ­inviting influential New Yorkers to enjoy all of the things that make summer in the city special ­with 10 Pins, a charity bowling party held at Brooklyn Bowl.
For three consecutive weeks, #SUMMERFRIDAYS has brought highly-anticipated, themed fetes to the city including:
  • “Oh Ship!² – a party held aboard the Hornblower yacht at Pier40 with a scenic boat cruise around the island of Manhattan.
  • ³The  Sleepover² – Tapping into the nostalgia of the 90’s house party, “The Sleepover” was a pajama party reinvented for adults with performances by GoldLink and Masego.
And for the finale of the event series, Team Epiphany gave back to the community & the culture with ’10 Pins,’ as 10 of NYC¹s most influential brands, restaurants, companies competed in the charity bowling party to benefit the Harold Hunter Foundation.  
 
The teams included; Pintrill, Jason Markk, Mighty Healthy, Sweetchick, Greats, Married to the Mob, Miss Lilly’s, Complex, Epic Records and more. 
 
With drinks provided by Tequila Avion, and some of the city¹s best bites provided by Blue Ribbon Chicken, guests watched the competition unfold while knocking down some pins as well. FoodKick provided additional fresh snacks to pair with the event¹s custom-themed cocktails.

In the surprise of the evening, renown DJ,  Scram Jones joined DJ Wonder on the turntables for an epic back-and-fourth battle moderated by the legendary DJ Clark Kent. The crowd was awestruck as the DJ¹s traded turns playing their one-of-a-kind mixes ­ from the latest hits, to 90¹s jams, to old-school classics. You can listen to DJ Wonder¹s set online here.
In the end, Miss Lilly’s emerged victorious from the competition and was granted the honor to present a check benefitting the Harold Hunter Foundation ­ a non-profit, grassroots, skateboard community-based organization that uses skateboarding as a vehicle to provide inner-city youth with valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness, and the development of life skills. The check was presented the Harold Hunters son, Ronald Hunter.
