Tommie Sunshine, founder and CEO of Brooklyn Fire: “Creating this was an easy decision as my family almost lost our summer home in Manasaquan, NJ. It was my grandmother's house and I spent every summer of my life visiting the Jersey Shore there. To see such devastation moved me to action. I wanted to go down there to help but that proved impossible, so I did what I could from here in Brooklyn and called Parag to join forces in creating what has become something very special. One of the best aspects of this is that Live Nation has let us make this event all ages so with the kids involved, I feel like this is going to be one rowdy Monday night in NYC.”
Parag Bhandari, founder and CEO of UG Strategies: “I was raised in New Jersey and I live in Brooklyn, and seeing the devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to the area is absolutely tragic. I’m honoured to be working with Tommie and so many great artists and partners to collectively do our part and help those in need with a great night of music.”
EDM For Sandy Relief is an ALL AGES event. Tickets are $20, with waived ticketing fees, and are available online at http://www.livenation.com.
