Tyga Surprises Children at the Los Angeles Hospital & Makes One Patients Dream Come True

Hip-Hop Recording Artist Tyga visited the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital Today to surprise patients with gifts and spent the day with a patient Isael Gomez, whose dream was to meet Tyga

 Tyga and Isael Lopez

December 13, 2013- Los Angeles- LA native, Hip Hop Recording Artist Tyga visited teens and tots in the Children’s Center for Cancer & Blood Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Tyga went room to room and surprised patients with Flips Audio Headphone, Music Bullets, Flipeez Action Hats, and clothing from his own company Last Kings.  As an LA native, Tyga wanted to give back to the hospital that takes care of kids in his community. The kids Tyga visited are battling some of the toughest and rarest forms of pediatric cancer, but they are in the best possible hands. The visit was especially meaningful for 16 year old Isael Lopez. Isael began dialysis as an infant and received a kidney transplant at the age of 5 and tried to live a normal childhood, but has had to have over 20 surgeries since he was a baby. His kidneys have since began to fail again, and as a result he is on dialysis again, which he has to do 3 times a week at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles until he can find a match to have another kidney transplant.  Isael is a huge fan of Tyga, not only as a musician but as a person as well.  Isael said that Tyga is a “good singer and also inspired me to write and compose music, but most of all because he is a good person to his fans”. Isael’s dream of meeting Tyga was fulfilled today as he got to spend the day hanging out with him in the hospital. Tyga said   “It’s important to support nonprofit organizations like Children’s Hospital Los Angeles—they take incredible care of our community, so as part of the community I am honored to help make a difference for these children’s life and to bring a smile to their faces..”

Flips Wrestling continues its support of wrestlers, signs six more!

October 1, 2013-  Pompton Lakes, NJ.  On the heels of its successful ESPN “I Am A Wrestler” advertising campaign starring Jordan Burroughs and Frank Molinaro, FlipsWrestling today announced the addition of 6 additional signature athletes for its headphones that transform into HD amplified speakers with a “flip.”  Current World Team Member Reece Humphrey, 2012 Olympians Coleman Scott and Jake Herbert, former World Team Member Nick Simmons, and NCAA champions Jordan Oliver and Frank Molinaro now don the familiar Flips “double ff” on their ears while each continues to train toward their future goals.  Those six studs join Olympic and World Champion Jordan Burroughs on the FlipsWrestling Team.

“A better group of athletes and, more importantly, quality people does not exist in any sport, period,” says FlipsWrestling’s Don Beshada.  “We could not be happier that each has agreed to wear and promote our unique headphones.  We want to give wrestlers something they can identify with, something that allows people to recognize them as ‘a wrestler,’ and our product provides that platform.”

Herbert – a 2009 World Silver Medalist who was at the center of the recently successful “Save Olympic Wrestling” movement – commented: “These FlipsWrestling guys are good people.  They are serious businessmen with wrestling backgrounds who are willing to support us, as athletes, and help alleviate the financial burden that comes along with full time training.  I’ve had certain bad experiences with companies in the past, and dealing with FlipsWrestling guys is like night and day from those experiences.  They really care about what I’m doing and how I do it, and run things like a family.  That is cool and, of course, the product rocks, so that, too, makes this deal fun.”

Molinaro, who is returning to competition this fall while keeping his position as assistant head coach of Rutgers University’s wrestling team, bluntly states:  “The bottom line is if you’re a wrestler who wears any other headphones to train and warm-up with, you’re truly not a wrestler at heart.  The FlipsWrestling guys have helped support my return to competition on all fronts, and are always willing to step up to assist me with what I need.  I couldn’t be happier that we met and developed a relationship, and I plan on being with them for a long time.”

“We care about our guys and want to see them succeed on the mat but, importantly, off the mat,” says Beshada.  “Again, there is isn’t a better group of people – wrestlers or non-wrestlers – that a company could affiliate with.  We look forward to continue to build these relationships with these very special athletes.”

Flips Wrestling- By Wrestlers for Wrestlers – Announces Jordan Burroughs Limited Edition Headphones and Multiple Strategic Partnerships

Pompton Lakes, NJ.   FlipsWrestling – the company that has taken the wrestling world by storm this summer with its headphones that change into amplified speakers with a “flip” and its “Train Alone or Train Out Loud” campaign – announced today the signing of multiple endorsement deals and partnerships at the highest levels of the wrestling community.  Tops on that list are an exclusive endorsement deal with reigning World and Olympic champion Jordan Burroughs, strategic partnership with Compound Clothing, and an advertising and endorsement deal with FloWrestling.

FlipsWrestling has created a special Burroughs Limited Edition Gold series headphone, available for a limited time at FlipsWrestling.com.  Burroughs, who was intimately involved in the design of his headphones, said of the partnership and item, “I have learned not to lend my name to anything or anyone that I am not proud to represent, and I am very proud to be representing the FlipsWrestling brand.  The company is run by wrestlers, and their headphones are unlike anything else on the market.  My signature Gold Series matches perfectly with my own brand, and made the deal a no brainer.  I mean, who wouldn’t want a signature headphone, especially one focused on wrestling?”

Cliff Fretwell, CEO of Compound Clothing, echoed Burroughs’ sentiments.  “Innovative product, cool design, comfort and volume – what more could you want from headphones and speakers, especially all-in-one,” said Fretwell.  He also noted, “the ‘Train Alone or Train Out Loud’ shirt and signature FlipsWrestling headbands that Compound created are already all over, and the wrestling season is still 3 months away!  Needless to say, Compound is proud to be in business with these guys, who all have wrestling backgrounds and, as a result, understand the unique athlete that is a wrestler.”

Martin Floriani, CEO of FloWrestling, said of his company’s involvement – “It’s great to see another company focused on wrestling.  When the headphones arrived at our offices, the scene was literal chaos opening up the packages.  We are excited to be on board and to say that FlipsWrestling headphones are the Official Headphones of FloWrestling.”

“Jordan Burroughs is universally recognized as the best wrestler in the world, and one of the greatest athletes on the planet;  Compound Clothing is the best apparel designer in the wrestling business; and, FloWrestling is, essentially, the ESPN of wrestling,” said FlipsWrestling’s Don Beshada.  “Match those 3 with the best, most innovative, headphones on the market, and of course we are super excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for us and for our parent, FlipsAudio.  We are especially excited to give back to and support the world’s greatest sport, and look forward to seeing Flips and the FlipsWrestling brand throughout the community in the coming season.”

The Burroughs Limited Edition Gold Series headphones and the FlipsWrestling “I am a Wrestler” commercial – presently running on ESPN – can be seen at flipswrestling.com.
