In response to the pandemic and the cancellation of Apollo-produced live events through the month of June, the Apollo Theater has established an emergency relief fund to financially stabilize the Theater and safeguard its future. In addition, a portion of the funds raised will be allocated for micro grants to support local merchants and small businesses in the 125th Street neighborhood impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Let’s Stay (In) Together: A Benefit To Support The Apollo” event marks the launch of a partnership between Gibson and the Apollo Theater which will include collaborations on future show programming, music preservation, music education initiatives, and support established and emerging talent.
