Past beneficiaries include WhyHunger, Edeyo Foundation (Haiti), Heifer International, NJ350, Doctors Without Borders, Musicians on Call, City Harvest and many more.Tickets and additional information including video clips can be found at .  Advance tickets are $22.50 adult & $15 student /$28 at the door.  Concert starts at 8pm.
