Fifth Harmony & DJ Cassidy
By Jack Barnes
VH1 Save The Music Foundation made a festive return to the Hamptons last night for their third annual HAMPTONS LIVE benefit with a performance from triple platinum, all-female pop group, Fifth Harmony and a special deejay set from world-renowned DJ Cassidy. The evening of entertainment, presented by Bai Beverages, raised more than 1M which will directly benefit the Foundation’s work of restoring music education in public schools across the country.

“We are so grateful for all those who made tonight possible, including our host committee, co-chairs Julie and Billy Macklowe and Chris McCarthy, and the amazingly talented Fifth Harmony and DJ Cassidy,” said Henry Donahue, executive director of VH1 SaveThe Music Foundation. “Their generous efforts and support are critical for our work to ensure that every student in America has access to a quality music education.”
In August 2016, VH1 Save The Music partnered with eBay For Charity to auction off the ultimate Fifth harmony experience, with 100% of the proceeds going back to the foundation. VH1 Save The Music is also running a contest for a local Long Island or Hamptons public school to win a piano valued at $10,000. To enter, contestants must simply post a video to VH1 Save The Music Foundation’s Facebook page explaining why their school deserves a piano using #SaveTheMusic. Past recipients of this piano grant include Bridgehampton and East Quogue schools.
