OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, along with the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, presented the Come Together NYC residency event at New York City Hall on September 13th. The event kicked off the Lennon Bus’s month-long residency in and around the boroughs of New York. OWC hosted their “Come Together with OWC in NYC” giveaway winner Bruce Mandel throughout the events, which culminated in Ringo Starr and his All-Starr’s Band’s concert at Radio City Music Hall on Thursday evening.

Attending the launch were Yoko Ono Lennon, Ringo Starr and Jeff Bridges, along with OWC Founder & CEO Larry O’Connor, President Jen Soulé, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Lennon Bus Founder & Executive Director Brian Rothschild. The morning kicked off with speeches from student activists, a check presentation to the winners of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, a “Give Peace A Chance” sing-along, and a “Bed-In for Peace” in front of City Hall. Legendary rock photographer Henry Diltz was on-hand to capture images of the morning activities and hosted a reception at his Morrison Hotel Gallery for attendees on Thursday afternoon.

Winner Bruce Mandel had this to say after the experience in New York “We are just about recovered from our Come Together with OWC in NYC adventure. As they say in Beatle-land, it was FABulous! Peace and Love!”
