Tickets are just $7 if you use the promo code SANDY. There will also be an auction of autographed merchandise, Jersey Strong t-shirts to buy and special guest appearances. All donations collected will go to the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund.

It is just another example of how many people have rallied in support of families, friends, neighbors or complete strangers devastated by this storm,” Mary Pat Christie, Chair of the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund said. “The funds raised from this event will help with our long-term recovery efforts in the months and years ahead, and assist the families, communities and businesses in these areas come back better and stronger.”
