NEW YORK, Cast members from BET’s new reality series, “Hustle In Brooklyn,” teamed up with The Breakfast Club hosts DJ Envy and Angela Yee at a charity event yesterday to compete and have fun for a great cause. “Who’s Got The Juice?” was held at Juices for Life in Brooklyn, a juice bar owned by DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Styles P; all the proceeds raised went to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the American Foundation for the University of West Indies (AFUWI).
“Hustle In Brooklyn” cast members Azia, Randy, Baggy Large, Perks, Danny, Marco and TP were divided into two teams, “Team Envy” (DJ Envy, Azia, Baggy Large, Perks) and “Team Yee”(Angela Yee, Danny, Marco and TP), and competed with their celebrity coaches to see which group could hustle up the most money in an hour for their charity, through juice sales, tips and online donations. Customers interacted enjoyably with the cast as they helped them decide what to order, prepared their drinks and spread the word about the great causes they were benefitting. “Team Envy” was able to take home the win, raising a sizeable donation which was then generously matched by BET Networks.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation, selected by DJ Envy, seeks to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a critical illness through the support of tens of thousands of volunteers and donors. In the United States and its territories, a wish is granted by the foundation every 34 minutes on average.
The American Foundation for the University of the West Indies (AFUWI), selected by Angela Yee is a member of the board, and seeks to provide scholarships, grants and fund special projects to create increased educational opportunities and foster the development of generations of West Indian people to come.
