“It is all about coming together to help our fellow Americans who need it the most in Texas and Florida,” Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen said. “We thank the artists for performing, and we urge our residents to come out and support the relief effort, and have a good time while doing so.”
Rahway’s own recording artist, Ny’a, organized the concert and brought the artists together. Rahway Mayor Sampson Steinman, who is a supporter of the show thanked her and hailed the event created to help disaster victims.
“Our Country has experienced back-to-back devastating weather events, and it has been said that hurricanes do not discriminate in their path of destruction,” Steinman said. “We are coming together to lift our hearts, raise funds and show our compassion for our fellow Americans in need. There is no finer way than to do than through music, a celebration of our culture and American way of life.”
Felice Twaddle, President of the Board of Directors at UCPAC added, “I am pleased that we are able to come together for a night of great entertainment to benefit those that were affected by the damages of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. My sincere thanks to all the artists that have graciously donated their time to make this event happen.”
