As the tri-state area, the place we call "HOME" continues to recover from Hurricane Sandy's devastation, Next Level Sports Performance & TNT Sports Training are hosting a BENEFIT, with all the proceeds and donations going to The Red Cross Relief Effort, but we are also FOCUSING on the families who LOST EVERYTHING. The Martino Family, one of TNT Sports Training Family, suffered a loss of their home and all their possessions in Sayreville NJ. Also one of Next Level's family members, The Smith Family (2 young children), has lost their home and belongings from their town in Keansburg NJ. So many families lost EVERYTHING, our beaches are GONE, and lives were LOST. NOW is the time to rise up together and REBUILD! NJ's MOST "WANTED" Band will be performing! Along with food and activities! Saturday, November 17th @7pm - 10pm. We need as much donations as possible! There is a way we can all help out together and keep STRONG! There will be a $20 cover charge plus we will be accepting food, clothing, blankets, and GIFT CARDS (such as: grocery shopping, home depot, Best Buy, ext.) DO NOT miss this special evening of GIVING BACK! Pass the word and let's do our part for bringing New Jersey back to normal. JERSEY STRONG!

I am a Keansburg resident and I have many friends and family members who want to donate money to the cause. Who do we write the checks out to if we want to donate to St. Marks?
