Apollo in the Hamptons

| September 15, 2017 | Parties

The annual fundraiser for the Apollo Theater brought the biggest performers to the Hamptons.

THE PARTY Harlem’s Apollo Theater has been an epicenter of culture since the 1930s. On Aug. 12, some of the theater’s biggest performers gave back to it by attending the Apollo in the Hamptons fundraising event. THE GUESTS Music superstars such as Questlove, The Roots and Patty Smyth gave performances at the estate known as The Creeks. Jamie Foxx, Chris Rock, Jennifer Lopez, Matt Lauer and Kendall Jenner were also in attendance. THE HIGHLIGHTS After a dinner of fried chicken and brisket, Justin Timberlake performed with Pharrell Williams in a barn. Timberlake sang some of his greatest hits, including “SexyBack” and “Rock Your Body,” and entertained the crowd by heckling some of the most affluent guests for donations, such as former Yankees shortstop Alex Rodriguez and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. “Let me find some rich people in here,” he said. His efforts helped to fund Apollo programs, such as outreach to minority students. -Kendyl Kearly
