Twisted Sister, led by frontman and Long Islanders Dee Snider, will headline a relief concert for victims of Hurricane Sandy at The Emporium in Patchogue on Sunday, Dec. 16. 

"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 Tim Lorito, owner of The Emporium. "We are thrilled to be able to partner with them to lend a hand to their fellow Long Islanders in need."

According to a release, The Emporium will donate $10,000 up front to immediately assist people on Long Island hit the hardest. With a goal of raising $100,000, The Emporium will donate all the net proceeds from ticket sales and bar revenue to the following recovery organizations:

Dee Snider is one of the most philanthropic rock artists and he truly cares about people and his home "town" of Long Island. Thanks to Dee and the rest of Twisted Sister for supporting Long Island in her time of need. You guys truly ROCK!!

Teresa, you are so very correct. Funny, back in the 80's everyone thought Dee Snider and his fellow band members were radical 'twisted' folks. So grateful for the work Dee to help others. He is yet another prime example of someone giving back because they want to, not because they have to. A true role model for children.

I totally agree Judy... Just a little " twisted" to hear Dee called a roll model... but totally true.

Good luck getting in. This venue has a habit of denying ticket holders entry unless you buy a "VIP" bottle of wine at the door. Bring extra cash or just make a donation to the red cross.
