All for the East End, a nonprofit that will raise money for other East End charitable organizations, will host its inaugural concert on Aug. 19 at Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead. Nile Rodgers will headline the concert, dubbed the AFTEE Nile Rodgers Dance Party. Joining him will be Avicii, a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum Swedish D.J.
Mr. Rodgers founded the band Chic, known for such hits as “Le Freak,” “We Are Family,” and “I’m Coming Out.” In a release, he predicted the concert, which is to be an annual event, will be the “greatest dance party the East End of Long Island has ever seen.”
“We are very lucky to head out of the gate with such an amazing program produced by Nile Rodgers,” Myron Levine, AFTEE’s president and founder, said in a release.
The organization plans to distribute money to other nonprofits through a grant process managed and administered by the Long Island Community Foundation.
Tickets to the Aug. 19 concert will cost $149, with a limit of four per person, but East End residents will have access to a limited number of East Ender tickets, offered at $50 apiece on a first-come, first-served basis. Both are available now online at aftee.org.
