On August 27, VH1 Save the Music Foundation will finish off the summer on a high note by returning to the East End to host its third annual Hamptons Live concert gala.
Taking place at a private Hamptons residence, the event will unite more than 500 of the most influential individuals and tastemakers from the worlds of philanthropy, fashion, art, media, design, finance, and film for a night of dancing and dining under the stars in celebration of a noteworthy cause. Guests enjoyed drinks by Bai Beverages, who will donate a portion of their proceeds to Save the Music until September 30 as part of their national partnership with the organization.
As one of Save the Music’s major fundraisers, proceeds from the evening will go toward the foundation’s mission to restore music programs in America’s public schools and raise awareness about how important music instruction can be to a child’s education—a cause that holds a lot of meaning for the event’s headliners, DJ Cassidy and the all-female pop group Fifth Harmony, whose chart-topping hit “Work From Home” is one of this summer’s biggest anthems.
“We’ve proudly been ambassadors for VH1 Save the Music for two years now because we’re big believers that music education should be a vital part of each child’s complete education,” says Fifth Harmony. “We’re looking forward to bringing our live show to the beach and having fun under the summer sky with people who support this important mission.” VH1 Save the Music Foundation’s Hamptons Live event takes place Saturday, August 27.
