TenTen Wilshire and Hip Hop Sisters Support Women, Youth and Ethnic Diversity

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2014) - MC Lyte is not merely a hip hop artist, lyricist and pioneer at breaking boundaries in the male dominated music genre which is hip hop. She is also the founder and CEO of the non-profit organization Hip Hop Sisters Foundation (HHSF).

The HHSF promotes and educates communities to embrace positive images of women of ethnic diversity. They bring together prominent leaders from the worlds of hip hop, entertainment and corporate entities, in turn offering women and youth support in cultural issues, health and wellness, financial empowerment, and educational and mentoring opportunities on a global basis.

Last summer, the foundation hosted an exciting Hip Hop Sisters social benefit on the rooftop lounge of the TenTen Wilshire as part of the BET Experience. There were approximately 300 attendees at the event, including HHSF president Lynn Richardson and foundation advisory members Kelly Price, Malcolm Jamal Warner, Kenny Lattimore, along with MC Smooth, Kym Whitley, Sheila E and D-Nice.

Y.E.S. Productions, one of the most respected event planners in its industry, was commissioned to transform the rooftop lounge. The TenTen Wilshire is an all inclusive downtown Los Angeles apartment complex. Within its chic walls is a fully functional environment for work and play. The suites are furnished with meticulous, sophisticated pieces, including hardwood floors and glass tile bathrooms. The kitchens are gourmet with the latest stainless steel appliances. Each facility is thermostat controlled and the soaking tubs offer astonishing panoramic views.

Taking advantage of the accommodations is akin to bringing all aspects of your life to one place. There is access to a full business center, and multiple board and conference rooms equipped with state of the art technology. There are game and recreational rooms, an event center and even a movie theater. Residents can utilize the in-house laundry machines and custom housekeeping services. All utilities, high speed Internet, local phones and premium cable are included in the flexible lease terms.

Considering TenTen's status, it seemed an excellent melding of style and charity bringing the Hip Hop Sisters social to the all inclusive downtown Los Angeles apartment complex's rooftop lounge. Guests were amazed by the views of the city while relaxing under the sun. Music was provided by DJ Jahkova and celebrity guest DJ Rebel. The meal was provided by Ladies Touch Catering and there was an open Ciroc Bar. Gift bags were provided by Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps and featured outstanding products from Shea Moisture, Lavish Beverages, MYX Fusions and Hula Girl. Everyone enjoyed themselves for an exceptional cause.

MC Lyte opened the Hip Hop Sisters social event thanking everyone for their support at the TenTen Wilshire. With a year under the foundation's belt, she was both proud and touched by how far the organization had come in an impressive twelve months. "Through the support we have received over the past year, Hip Hop Sisters Foundation has been able to touch the lives of our youth and empower them to take charge of their destiny."
