Two Toms River teens who were moved to help local Hurricane Sandy victims and already organized two benefit concerts that raised over $30,000 in funds for the recovery effort, will once again give their audience a reason to scream, and this time two reasons. Decked out in a Halloween theme, a costume contest will take center stage where winners will have an opportunity to win a personal meet and greet with the bands. Marking one year since the storm, people still need our help to rebuild their lives and everybody knows, there is no better way to bring people together than music.
On Sunday, November 3rd, the organizers, Sara Brilliant, a 15-year-old sophomore at Toms River High School North, and Amanda Kacperowski, a 17-year-old senior at Monsignor Donovan, will host their third Hurricane Relief Concert, this one known as Fear The Pier at Hemingway’s Café in Seaside Heights. The concert will feature five bands including: Strong Soul from Monmouth County; Radio Activity from Bergen County; Fountain Boulevard from Burlington, N.J.; Alex Costa from New York; and headliner, Before You Exit, an Orlando, FL-based band that recently toured with Olly Murs and Cody Simpson.
ALL PROCEEDS will benefit the New Jersey Amusement Association’s First Responders Fund which has already provided grants to those First Responders and families in need following the storm. After the recent Seaside Boardwalk fire that destroyed Amanda and Sara’s playground, the girls wanted to do more to show their appreciation for the men and women who protect us on a day-to-day basis.
