Sweet 16 celebration, for a sweet girl and a sweet charity

R&B star Ginuwine and his wife Tonya Lumpkin, previously known as rapper Sole, hosted their daughter Cypress Lee’s Sweet 16 at DC hotspot Eden to benefit the Somaly Mam Foundation – a charity that aims to end modern-day human trafficking. This was not your ordinary spoiled-child Sweet-16… the celebration raised over $2,000 for the charity, as Cypress’ guests were asked to donate money at the door in lieu of gifts. Before making her birthday wish and blowing out the candles, Cypress enjoyed the smooth singing of Father Ginuwine for a very special a cappella ‘Happy Birthday song.’ Notable guests at the bash included Paul Wharton of Bravo’s Real Housewives of DC, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Ayman Hakki, and 14-year-old sensation DJ Young Music. Scrumtious hors d’oeuvres were provided from Cafe Asia and cupcakes from Frosting: A Cupcakery.
