SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Rock and soul band GoodWorks will award a free holiday party performance and $100 donation to one nonprofit organization through the band's “Rock Your Holiday” Contest. 

“There are so many great nonprofits out there doing good works. We want to make more nonprofits aware of how we can help them. The nonprofit’s staff members or supporters can nominate their favorite organization as a thank you for the services the organization provides,” said band leader Paul Lavenhar of Scotch Plains. 

GoodWorks helps nonprofit organizations by donating its performances and providing marketing support for events. The Highland Park High School Orchestra, Bridgeway Rehabilitation, Alternatives, Bedminster Charities Fall Fest, Heart Hike, and the Two Kids Foundation are among the organizations helped in the last year.
