Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons, Mr. Killa and Prince Swanny are among the guest lineup for Angela Yee Day this year. The event is set to go down on August 27th at the Barclay’s Centre in Brooklyn.

Yee, an award winning media personality and co-host of the Breakfast Club on Power105.1FM in NY, is partnering with iHeartMedia and The Social Justice Fund, to host the 4th annual Angela Yee Day celebration. The free community event will provide school supplies, including bookbags and totes for 400 children thanks to The Lelievre Foundation and Backpack International, food from Chick-fil-a, and a LIVE art installation from Solidarity Moving.

When asked about the event, Yee said, “The purpose of Angela Yee Day has always been to give something back to the community. Our partners and sponsors stepped in to help us make this year’s event bigger than years prior. From the school supply giveaway to the artist line up and live art installation, we are giving Brooklyn a dope event!”

This year’s Angela Yee Day will also serve as the culmination of ‘Belong Brooklyn’ initiative this summer. Brooklynites are encouraged to post online about what belonging means to them – and for each post, money will be donated to the following 5 organizations:
• Weeksville Heritage Center
• Brooklyn Defenders
• Children of Promise
• Brooklyn United Music and Arts Program
• Bard Prison Initiative / Bard Micro college at Brooklyn Public Library


Additional sponsors include Personal Touch CDPAP, Solidarity Movers, Nao*Medical, Acorns, U.S. Army, and Austin Macauley Publishers.
In 2018, the New York City mayor officially designated August 28th as Angela Yee Day, a platform that celebrates Yee’s Caribbean and Brooklyn roots while supporting local businesses. Her dedication to providing the community with information and access to culture, nutrition, financial literacy, and education remains the core of her philanthropy.
