On August 16, 2014, Apollo Theater board member Ronald O. Perelman hosted the 5th Annual Apollo in the Hamptons at his East Hampton home. The benefit featured a blowout concert with performances by legendary superstars Sting, Jon Bon Jovi, Gladys Knight, Oscar-winning actor and musician Jamie Foxx with Apollo board member, Pharrell Williams serving as Creative Director, and the ultimate house band, The Roots.

The event was co-chaired by Ronald Perelman; board chairman, Dick Parsons; board member Ronald K. Kraft; and Jon Bon Jovi, and was underwritten by Mr. Perelman. The Apollo Theater is a not for profit organization. The funds raised from this event support the Apollo’s world-class performances, education initiatives, and community programs.
