As August roles in the DJ For A Cure team reflects on all the major support received from everyone who has played a part in the DJ4C movement.
To all of those who attended any of the DJ4C events we appreciate your support and to those who haven’t, continue to follow us to get info on upcoming events.
Until then check this out… An estimated 1.1 million people in the US are living with, or are in remission from blood cancer!
That 1.1 million could include friends, family, neighbors, even a stranger you pass on the street, regardless you can help change this fact to fiction by donating to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or even following the DJ4C movement for support.
Any kind of help is greatly appreciated by our team. So continue to follow us, check us out on twitter/instagram @djforacure or go to our website at djforacure.com!
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‘!

All roads lead to Salon de Lafayette for the bday celebration of Miss funky fresh DJ QUIANA PARKS!
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

Nothing to do this Saturday night? Whether you are in Jersey or NYC, I have two parties that are worth checking out.
THE JUNQUI’S very own QUIANA PARKS will be the haute DJ providing the tunes for this shindig. And I heard the shots are amazing. Two great reasons to go, right?
A party with a cause! The great folks of The Sweat Party are doing it again, this time with hosts NINA SKY who are going to showcase their skills on the 1s and 2s as well! For the Wellness Hour, there will be blood pressure readings, massage therapy and anonymous H.I.V. testing. After that, it’s all about the dancing! Proceeds will go towards breast, prostate + lung cancer. What’s not to love?
Tru Fam had an excellent year, winning hearts and minds, respectively, with the first single “Drip N’ Gold” from the new EP. The young East Coast rappers are making noise with their latest project “Thrill” featuring King Faro ,Gino Lispi and Bryce Alvord. The new music is showing a deeper darker side to the rap duo, unleashing a lot of coiled energy and new found creativity. The album is a bewildering one, combining melancholic background vocals, relentless tick and bass, the menace of twins’ darker corners, big tunnel-y dance beats, and plenty of other sounds just waiting to be excavated. The first single from the duo’s EP, entitled “Thrill”, sets the tone straight off the back. While songs like Driven featuring Gino Lispi, fall on the side of Tru Fams’s poppier work, with a sparkly build and mid-range vocals. These guys are known for great music, so who knows what the rest of the EP will sound like, but “Thrill” is a promising taster.
Here is the Supreme exhibition at the 032c Workshop in Berlin. Not something one sees very often by the New York City skate brand, they teamed up with the Berlin based contemporary culture magazine and its Editor in Chief Jorg Koch, for a small skate deck retrospective exhibition the the magazine’s headquarters.
Supreme has worked with some of the biggest names in the art world in recent years, including Kaws, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Mr., Takashi Murakami and many others – seeing them all in one place is certainly worth having a look.
The exhibition celebrated its opening on December 1st, 2012, and we managed to pass and give you a small look at what you missed. Of course the exhibition attracted a crowd, all eager to see what Supreme and 032c had put together.
Take a look at some pictures from the exhibition in the above gallery.
