Fly Events: #SUMMERFRIDAYS Concludes with ’10 Pins’ Charity Bowling Event at Brooklyn Bowl

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.

Tuesday in FASHION: Timberland X Team Epiphany …

I feel special now. Tastemakers like Pharrell, Jamie Fox, Va$htie, Tristan Wilds, and fellow Blogger Marcus Troy have all been spotted in new Timberland Boots courtesy of Team Epiphany. Team Epiphany recently announced that it has been selected as the seeding influencer PR agency of record for The Timberland Company.

‘Team Epiphany will work closely with Timberland throughout 2010 to develop and implement influencer strategy for the brand’s footwear in North America. In particular, they will be tasked with helping to identify and engage with tastemakers and influencers who embody the Timberland spirit, reinforcing the brand’s authentic outdoor heritage. For 2010, their primary focus will be on key initiatives including the Earthkeepers™, Timberland Boot Company® and Abington® collections.’

Last week I received a package courtesy of Timberland & Team Epiphany and I was quite humbled. Seriously. It’s one thing to consider yourself an influencer, it’s another to be given that title by your peers.

Not to mention that the boots are DOPE!

Pharrell has the Earthkeepers 2.0

And Terrence J has the Tackheads I have, but in a different colorway. Step into Timberland and peep how they are stepping that boot and shoe game up!

Thanks to Levon & Team Epiphany!
