Wrap to Rap 2008

On Wednesday, November 19th, nearly 200 teens in foster care were joined by members of the New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) Board of Directors and Friends Committee at the Empire Hotel Rooftop for the Sixth Annual Wrap to Rap.Guests were treated to special musical performances by Sean Kingston and Mario, and LL Cool J’s attendance brought an extra dose of holiday cheer to the teen volunteers at Wrap to Rap.As DJ D Nice spun hip hop classics, volunteers wrapped more than 1500 holiday gifts to be distributed to children in foster care this holiday season.
