Breakfast of Champions (Events)

The Breakfast of Champions is an annual celebration of our largest monetary donors (The Dream Team) and most impactful in-kind donors.   This year’s breakfast will take place at Busboys and Poets located at 14th and V St NW. The Breakfast of Champions is co-hosted by our amazing Board of Directors and WBL Staff.  With up to 10% of our annual operating budget coming directly from public support and earned income, we know how truly impactful our Champions are in supporting the work we do with DC youth and families through Hip-Hop.  This is an invitation only celebration.

Philanthrobeat (Events)

Party like a philanthropist! Philanthrobeat is much more than a celebration of philanthropy and Hip-Hop culture; it’s a celebration of the invisible generation of emerging philanthropists and the difference they make in our community.  Philanthrobeat is a multi DJ celebration that takes place between 3 and 4 times a year.  It is a themed party that allows the DJ’s to play music they love that is not on the radio.  Philanthrobeat is a celebration of our donors and as such is free to all our donors.  This event is 21 and up.

Fire @ the Fridge (new event)

Fire is the newest monthly event hosted by Words Beats & Life.  Created in the spirit of Bar Nun’s: The Movement, It’s Your Mug and Freestyle Union, Fire is a cipher of poets, MCs, philosophers, and musicians.  Each event is dedicated to sparking thought, action and creativity to foster a stronger scene to make a richer Creative Capital City.  To that end it is hosted in a gallery space, with the hope that some of the visual art on display will be the source of inspiration for new works and collaboration.  The first hour of this event is dedicated to the creatives, in the form of a writing/performing/reflecting workshop.  The public program is intended to be a space for creatives to build with each other and the audience, not just to perform.
