Twisted Sister will headline a benefit concert on Sunday, December 16 at 6 p.m. at The Emporium in Patchogue in support of Long Islanders affected by Hurricane Sandy. The Emporium has donated $10,000 to help the people on the ground right now, and they hope to achieve their goal of raising $100,000 for the families affected by the worst storm to ever hit the area, with the public’s help.

The Emporium will be donating 100% of the net proceeds from ticket and bar revenue to four different charities. 25% each will go to Long Island Cares,Inc., The Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Island Park Music Program, whose musical instruments were lost in the flood waters, and the remaining 50% to local families in need.

“TWISTED SISTER is a world-renowned superstar hard rock band who grew up on Long Island and proves time and time again that they have never forgotten their roots,” said The Emporium owner Tim Lorito, “We are thrilled to be able to partner with them to lend a hand to their fellow Long Islanders in need.”

“We are excited to be able to show our love to the people of Long Island who have been impacted by this storm and bring them a rock show for the ages” said JJ French of TWISTED SISTER, who now lives in Manhattan — another one of the areas hit heavily by the Hurricane. “This is certainly going to be a night to remember.”
