In Manchester, How Do You Help Hurricane Victims?
Fundraiser for Sandy-Hit Schools at Martell's March 2
A fundraiser for two schools and Shore 2 Recover will be held from 5 p.m. to midnight March 2 at Martell's on the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk.
The admission fee of $25, for non-stop live music and complimentary dinner buffet, will be donated as follows: $20 to Hugh J. Boyd Elementary School in Seaside Heights and Memorial School in Union Beach and $5 to Shore2Recover’s rebuild program.
Shore 2 Recover was founded by Toni Pecunia, a resident of Point Pleasant whose home was partially-flooded by the storm, according to the organization's website. The organization has donated funds to various needs, including helping Sandy-impacted families and to St. Paul's kitchen in Bay Head that has been feeding free, hot meals to affected families since shortly after Sandy struck.
Pecunia started the organization "as a way to give back to the community and the many people and groups who rushed to assist the storm-ravaged shore," the website says. The live bands include: Under Pressure; The Mike Dalton Band; Undisputed; The E Street Shuffle; The Replicants; Punch Bully and The Bell Bottom Blues.
Tickets are available at Martell's or purchase online at the Shore 2 Recover website.
