Crohns and Colitis Foundation 3rd Annual Banded Together Showcase


ASBURY PARK, N.J. - We hope you’ll join us in our excitement as we announce the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s 3rd annual “BANDed Together – Pony Up for the Cure” event at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park on August 2, 2018. Through the support of our generous and committed event attendees like yourself, as well as our community sponsors, we were able to raise almost $30,000 to benefit the Foundation at last year’s event.
In 2018, we’re introducing a unique opportunity for those committed to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and the furtherance of our mission. Please see attached for our Friends & Family Partnership opportunities to not only support the Foundation and BANDed Together event in a meaningful way, but to also receive recognition for your generosity and loyalty to the Foundation.
We look forward to once again have the opportunity to showcase multiple NJ bands at the legendary Stone Pony. Among them, we’re excited to announce that this year Brian Kirk & the Jirks will be headlining the event, along with special guests “Not on Call” and “The Stiff Joints.”
The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding a cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. These diseases, collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), are painful, chronic illnesses that affect up to 1.6 million children and adults in America. The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of the children and adults affected by these digestive diseases. We need your help in achieving our goal! Over $.80 of every dollar raised goes directly to our mission.
For any questions about partnership opportunities or other ways to help support our event, please contact the NJ Chapter office at 732-786-9960 ext. 3 or e-mail Ashley at

Thank you for your time and consideration. We hope we can count on your support!
