WAFF Celebration 2019 - Save the Date!

Once a year our We Are Family Foundation throws the best party in New York City to support some of the world's most incredible young people positively impacting our planet.

Here's a throwback to 2016, one of our favorite Celebrations honoring President Jimmy Carter and Bono - two of the most incomparable examples of humanity.

From President Carter's heartfelt words about his friend, and our very first Global Teen Leader Mattie J.T. Stepanek, to Bono's electrifying rare performance with Nile Rodgers and CHIC...THIS is how we party.

November 5th is this year's date to Freak Out! Hold the Date!

Nile Rodgers and CHIC Kick Off July 4th Festivities Live at the Hollywood Bowl

Nile Rodgers and CHIC Kick Off July 4th Festivities Live at the Hollywood Bowl

by ILANA TEL-OREN

July 3rd 2019 -- Patriotism, fireworks and disco were the ultimate recipe for a fantastic fourth of July celebration in Los Angeles. This was the first of three Nile Rodgers & CHIC at the Hollywood Bowl performances and fans simply couldn’t stay in their seats.

The concert began with American classics by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by conductor Thomas Wilkins. They opened the night with some light, feel-good music from John Williams and more. But the Drumline, who notoriously performed with Beyonce during her Coachella set and were featured on her blockbuster documentary Homecoming, kicked things up a notch with dancers and crowd integration as the brass and drum ensemble played songs one might hear at a sporting event.
