Sunday Night Soul

5 Sep



Unless you’ve been living under a rock in Midtown, you’ve heard of SoulCycle: the extremely intense yet gratifying workout that features energy-infused music sets, inspiring instructors, and a whole lot of peddling. Whether you’re already a SoulCycle fanatic or looking to finally get on a bike and see what all the fuss it about, this is the perfect opportunity for you:  Join me on September 15th at a charity ride to benefit God’s Love We Deliver.

Friends and supporters of God’s Love We Deliver will get together for 45 minutes of fun, love and sweat! Hosted by God’s Love at SoulCycle in SoHo, 100% of the event proceeds will benefit the God’s Love We Deliver Expansion Campaign!

And that’s not all: Miss USA Erin Brady and Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf will be joining in the evening’s bike ride so buy a bike and you can ride alongside them!

Bikes can be reserved at a number of tiered levels and there’s only 53 available, so grab yours before they’re all gone. Tickets can be purchased on the GLWD website.

For any questions or concerns regarding Sunday Night Soul for God’s Love, please contact Nick at 917-280-5778 or McKenzie at 202-679-5544.

A Multi-Designer Sale’s Event and Fundraiser

10 Feb



Over 20 Independent Designers, Makers & Vintage Collectors Selling

for the Benefit of God’s Love We Deliver

NEW YORK – Feb 8, 2012 – Artists & Fleas, Williamsburg’s weekly indoor market for artists, independent designers and vintage collectors, will hold Love for Sale, a multi-designer Valentine’s Day sales event with a portion of proceeds to benefit God’s Love We Deliver. The weekend-long sale will be held on February 11th & 12th at Artists & Fleas’ Williamsburg, Brooklyn location. Over 20 participating indie designers, artists and vintage collectors have contributed an item to be sold at prices discounted up to 20% off of regular pricing in a red color themed area curated by the market management. Participants will include Georgia Varidakis Jewelry, FSMNYC, QP & Monty and the Spooky Boutique. Artists & Fleas will match sales profits in a contribution to God’s Love We Deliver. Additionally, Brooklyn-based Karaoke DJs The Kings of Karaoke will be holding a Saturday evening free karaoke session beginning at 5pm to kick off the weekend.

“Valentine’s Day at the market has always been as much about giving as it is receiving and the opportunity to get gift-worthy goods while supporting independent artists and a tremendous organization caring for people across New York City is a perfect match,” said Ronen Glimer, co-founder of Artists & Fleas with Amy Abrams.

Artists & Fleas has curated a space within the market for Love for Sale, consisting of merchandise and items for sale across a wide range of styles and trends in fashion, art and design with merchandise to include jewelry, clothing, housewares, handmade goods, vintage fashion, antiquities and visual arts. Some highlights include:

  • Georgia Varidakis Jewelry, a Williamsburg-based designer of modern-day heirloom jewelry.
  • Evolving Habitat, Brooklyn-based design studio that re-purposes found and salvaged items such as deer antlers, birch wood, antique glass and metal for the home and wardrobe.
  • QP & Monty, East Village-based vintage sellers and creators of a series of bespoke men’s clothing.
  • Pioneering women’s vintage collector Ricky Becker of Spooky Boutique, a long-time NYC advisor to fashion stylists seeking inspiration from vintage clothing and period pieces.
  • More than 20 other independent designers from the Artists & Fleas’ community.

Artists & Fleas “Love For Sale” will be open Saturday & Sunday, February 11th & 12th from 10:00 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 70 North 7th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and is free to the public.
