DJ For A Cure’s second event went down last Thursday with PUMA and KRINK NYC. The event took place in No. 8’s edgy, yet cozy game room. The event was hosted by DJ KISS and featured two inspirational speeches from DJ4C’s very own Quiana Parks and cancer survivor Lindsey Lewis.
DJ Charles Browne started out the night DJing getting the crowd in the party mood and ready to kick ass at some games. DJ Austin Millz and Quiana Parks soon followed him with sets of their own. DJ Rick Kid even stopped by for a surprise visit finishing out the night with his set.
Throughout the night the Leukemia & Lymphoma society collected donations from the guests, and ended up raising $591!
It was a successful night for the DJ4C team! Thanks to everyone who came to support and to everyone who donated. Continue to follow the DJ4C movement; the next event will be going down July 14th!

This Thursday it’s going down at No. 8 in NYC. DJ For a Cure and PUMA are teaming up again for their second DJ4C event in the city.
An old-fashioned game night will be taking place, so if you’re competitive come out and you’ll get the chance to win some amazing prizes some of which are from KRINKnyc!
Austin Millz will be spinning along with Charles Browne. Chef Roble and the lovely DJ KISS will be the hosting for the night so you won’t want to miss that. DJ Quiana Parks plans on auctioning off one of her oil painting as a donation for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. So come out and support the DJ4C movement this Thursday, see you there!
Approximately every 3 minutes one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer and approximately every 10 minutes someone in the US dies from a blood cancer.
Facts like these are the reason the DJ for a Cure movement began; the organization is comprised of a group of deejays, visual artists, musicians, advocates, and the dopest cancer survivor, DJ Quiana Parks. They all came together with the sole purpose of raising awareness to fight blood cancers by using their creativity.
As you can tell DJ for a Cure is heavily rooted in the arts and all of you supporters may not be as artsy as you’d like, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help flip these cancer facts to fiction by helping to make a change. There are dozens of ways to help change the devastating statistics. Go check out djforacure.com to see how you can get involved.
Whether it’s donating a few bucks, attending the next DJ4C event, or joining the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night Walk we are all capable of flipping the script on these facts and fighting for a cure.
Before you know it you’ll become the next ‘advocate junqui‘!

Wednesday night I joined forces with renowned lifestyle brand PUMA to host the First Annual DJ For A Cure Art & Mix Show! Over 200 of New York’s key influences and tastemakers gathered at Mister H to raise over $5,000 dollars for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The room was filled with industry creatives such as Ty Hunter (Beyonce’s wardrobe stylist), Luke James (Grammy Nominated Recording Artist), Chef Roble (Bravo TV Reality Star), Shaun Ross (Model) and DJ D-Nice, Legendary Damon (Stylist) and more.
It was AH-May-ZING! I am an 8 year cancer survivor so for me this event hit close to home. It meant a lot to me to have all of my friends and family come out to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
Special Thanks to all of those who helped! -@quianaparks
