::Community Event: No1s Done It Right Presents the Kid 'N Play Block Party Benefiting New Design High School::
No 1s Done It Right, in association with Network Edutainment Group, will host Kid ‘N’ Play: The Block Party, in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Headlining musical acts, food vendors and an array of activities will unfold in a dazzling street festival catering to all ages. The neighborhood, best-known for its delicious restaurants, will come together in food and fun to celebrate its very own, New Design High School.
No1sDoneItRight (N1DIR) is comprised of a group of young adults that was formed out of a love for music and a desire to make substantial contributions to underprivileged children around the world. Since November 2007, the group has helped to raise funds for the Macheo Children's Centre in Thika, Kenya, with the funds going towards helping run the establishment, and providing care for the children living in the orphanage. N1DIR has redefined nightlife and the conventional charity event, with headlining parties and concerts as a platform for change, both locally and abroad. Since its launch last fall, N1DIR has garnered a steady following in New York City, and is currently expanding to cities around the world.
Half of the proceeds from this event will benefit New Design High School in New York, a public performing arts high school that focuses on the academic, intellectual, social, emotional, and artistic development for youth, keeping them off the streets and in creative learning environments. Due to state-wide budget cuts announced in early February, the school is forced to discontinue numerous programs.
Performances from NYC’s finest will light up the block, while DJ-favorite’s spin sets are guaranteed to keep the crowd moving. Universal/SRC recording artist Camp Lo, Network Edutainment Group's Loj, and Jade are set to perform along with Complex Magazine's DJ Treats, Kev Sakoda and Melo-x on the turntables.
WHEN: Saturday, July 26, 2008, 3pm to 7 pm
WHERE: Open Road Park, 439 E. 12th Street, New York, NY
