SHINE A LIGHT A Special Light of Day Concert Stream Fundraiser for Asbury Park Dinner Table
Goo Goo Dolls’ Johnny Rzeznik Highlights 19-Artist Fundraiser from Producers of Annual ‘Light Of Day’ Winterfest Extravaganza – Sunday, Nov. 22, 11:15 am on the Light of Day Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Proceeds Support Pandemic-Challenged Restaurants and the Food-Insecure in Legendary Seaside Resort
This very special event is being staged by the Asbury Park-based Light of Day Foundation (LOD), whose annual January-long concert series in support of Parkinson’s Disease research and treatment have been a Jersey staple for more than two decades. “As winter approaches and the issue of food insecurity during this COVID crisis grows, The Light of Day Foundation will ‘shine its light’ in an effort to raise money and awareness to support its spiritual hometown and the great work of Asbury Park Dinner Table,” said Tony Pallagrosi, LOD’s executive director and co-founder.
The event will formally kick off right before 11 a.m. as Tom Cunningham, host of the Jersey Shore Sunday morning radio institution Springsteen on Sunday on 107.1 “The Boss,” will “shine a light” on the presentation and direct his listeners to Light of Day’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
“The Asbury Park Dinner Table is honored to have the Light of Day Foundation “shine a light” on us as we now face the Winter months, which normally are stark in Asbury Park, but now are at a crisis stage with the addition of the pandemic. We also thank and appreciate the artists donating their time and talent to this concert fundraiser in the Asbury Park community spirit that many of us know is something very special,” added Allison Kolarik, co-founder, Asbury Park Dinner Table.
