5th Annual Queenz Of Hip-Hop In Denver To Benefit Street’s Hope

queenz2In recent pop culture, philanthropy is often paired with the arts, specifically music. Many celebrities tie themselves to charities and nonprofit work. The sophisticated combination of charity and art are also much appreciated on a smaller scale. It is no surprise that Denver’s Hip-Hop Congress will host the next local charity event.

This Saturday, the fifth annual Queenz of Hip-Hop will be held at the Denver Art Society. This event is definitely on the must-attend list for the summer. There will be hip-hop and b-girl dance battles, live art, spoken word, and, yes, even graffiti. Queenz of Hip-Hop will be an event reminiscent of true hip-hop culture.

Cindy Cervantes, a member of Hip-Hop Congress, says Queenz of Hip-Hop is an event that is meant to “honor women in the local hip-hop community” however; the best part about this already-spectacular showcase is that it is also charitable. Although entry is free, there is a suggested donation of paper towel, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, or other similar items. In order to participate in the “1v1 Footwork”,”1v1 B-Girl”, or “2v2 Bonnie and Clyde” battles there is also a suggested donation of a few of the items listed previously.

The donations collected from the event will be given to an organization called Street’s Hope. Street’s Hope provides aid and relief to women that previously worked in the sex trafficking and/or commercial sex industry. Additional information about Street’s Hope can be found here.
