Revel’s HQ Nightclub, Atlantic City’s newest club already renowned for bringing in some of the most famed electronic dance music (EDM) talent on the international circuit, is spearheading a humanitarian cause to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy. 

With a stellar lineup slated for this weekend, Nov. 9-11, the club, in collaboration with associates Angel Management Group, the EMM Group and Revel, will be utilizing the performances from all three nights, and the revenue they generate, as an opportunity to reach out to a local community in dire need. 

In the wake of Sandy’s devastating blows to Atlantic City and similarly affected shoreline districts, and following the lead of N.J. Gov. Chris Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie in their establishment of a non-profit relief fund to assist New Jersey families impacted by the destructive storm (SandyNJReliefFund.org), HQ Nightclub has developed Revel Nightlife Relief — an effort to support Atlantic City locals and surrounding neighborhoods by donating all weekend ticket and door sales directly to the cause.

On Friday, Nov. 9, HQ kicks off with AN21 followed by Bambi on Saturday, Nov. 10, and Afrojack on Sunday, Nov. 11 — the latter of whom is an EDM icon in the midst of his wildly successful “Jacked” tour. 

Revel Nightlife Relief has already raised $35,000 for the cause, with the hope of achieving or surpassing its goal of $100,000. Tickets start at $20 each for AN21 and Bambi, and $60 for Afrojack, and are available at RevelNightlife.com. Doors open at 10pm each night and are for guests of 21 years and older. Come out for a night (or two, or three) of top-notched nightlife entertainment while simultaneously contributing to a great cause and much-needed relief. Visit the Revel Nightlife Facebook page (facebook.com/revelnightlife) for more.

“When I look at Atlantic City, maybe I just see something different,” says DeSanctis. “What I see, when you go out on our Sky Garden or you go out on our deck, that’s sort of the Atlantic City that I think about. We have this incredible geographic location. We have 47 million people within a six-hour drive of this place, and when we think about options from a resort perspective in the Northeast, there really aren’t any. "
