Pacha NYC Held an EDM Benefit Concert with Proceeds Going to the Greater New York Red CrossNovember 15, 2012 By: Nightclub and Bar
Following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, last night New York nightclub Pacha NYC held a 12-hour EDM benefit concert. The once-in-a-lifetime night of music featured a huge roster of over 50 DJs, including international and local stars with 100% of the proceeds going to the Greater New York Red Cross and other local charities. In addition to donating all profits, the staff of Pacha and all artists offered their services free of charge. From coat check tips to DJ fees, everyone in the building was there for the sole purpose of supporting the tri-state area, and getting it back on its feet again.
Help Heal New York featured dance legends and up-and-comers alike, including Erick Morillo, Danny Tenaglia, Francois K, Afrojack, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Carl Kennedy, Danny Avila, Shermanology and many more, along with a Fool's Gold vs. Trouble & Bass showcase.
"We all love this city and have deep roots throughout the region. Even if we weren't in its direct path, this storm hit us all hard," explains Pacha NYC co-owner Eddie Dean. "Everyone jumped at the chance to help out. We're so gratified that DJs who don't live in New York but still have so much love for it were more than willing to lend a hand as well."
