Swedish House Mafia supports Hurricane Sandy Relief

As I'm sure most of you are aware, the East Coast was, recently, hit by Hurricane Sandy.  Major parts of Long Island, Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn and New Jersey were destroyed over the course of this natural disaster.  In addition, numerous lives of the people who inhabit these areas were affected.  Gas shortages, power outages, destruction of homes, and looting plagued the East coast for more than a week as a result of the hurricane's wrath. Most devastating of all was the loss of more than 110 people's lives during the course of this storm. Hurricane Sandy has, no doubt, left a huge impact on the areas it affected.  The East Coast will be forced to face these lasting affects for months and even years to come but, on a lighter note, many people have come to the aid of Hurricane Sandy victims including Swedish House Mafia. 

Swedish House Mafia had previously announced an indefinite hiatus to follow their One Last Tour but, the EDM superstars won't stop there, at least not before making their contribution to Hurricane Sandy relief.
SHM announced their 'Black Tie Rave' to be held February 28th in the midst of their final tour. This event will take place at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and will require black tie and ball gown attire be worn by all of its attendees.
Tickets for this classy event will be auctioned on Ticketmaster starting as early as December 14th at 10AM with 100% of the proceeds going straight to the Mayor's fund to aid the victims of Sandy within New York and New Jersey.
With Swedish House Mafia's numerous Gold and Platinum hits and reputation as one of the most successful supergroups amongst the electronic dance music community, as well as all over the world, this night is sure to be an unforgettable way to make your contribution and help out the many people affected by this tragedy.
