Big Ang’s Dance Party Brings Pride and Community to Staten Island July 16th
Angela Raiola-Murphy, aka Big Ang, truly loved giving back to her community and found great personal satisfaction having the ability to assist so many with her celebrity status and platform. The smiles on everyone face were the only thanks she ever needed for all her generosity and hard work. Angela’s desire to make people happy never wavered and was a constant throughout her life up until she passed away in February. Big Ang’s Dance Party brings Pride and Community to Staten Island July 16th. This is the first ever memorial/charity concert in honor of the late reality star, and it will be incredible. Angela worked tirelessly for the betterment of Staten Island and in her memory, all profits from the concert will benefit many of Angela’s favorite organizations including the Community Health Action of Staten Island (CHASI). Funds will be distributed through Community Health Action Staten Island to the Staten Island LGBTQ Center, and the Hungerford School, as well as CHASI’s Addiction Treatment Program to help battle the drug epidemic.
An iconic resident of Staten Island, Big Ang is remembered for her love of disco dance music and living life to the fullest, overshadowing her numerous charitable endeavors. All of the performers and organizers will be donating their services in loving memory of Angela and with respect to her charities.
Angela Raiola’s commitment and love for the LGBTQ community makes this inaugural event a perfect end to the day’s Staten Island Gay Pride Parade and Festival. Continuing Staten Island Pride’s celebration at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, the after party Dance concert continues Angela’s tradition bringing her community together with great music to make and share special memories.
Angela said often, “Party every day and live life to the fullest because ya never know when ya gonna go!” For sure this concert will be great fun and nothing less than everything Angela Raiola-Murphy embodied. Angela’s close friend, Social Media Director and favorite DJ, Vinnie Medugno will MC the concert.
