The 2nd Annual Makin Waves Hunger Benefit for Food for Thought fundraising event will be held on November 16th & 17th, offering free musics concerts consisting of different bands and artists to help raise funds to help Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park to help feed the homeless during the upcoming holiday season with its Food for Though non-profit.
Every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, Asbury Park’s Langosta Loungeand its Food for Thought nonprofit host a holiday dinner for the homeless and the hungry. Given how much Langosta and adjacent Asbury Park Yacht Club do for the local music scene, these FREE shows will help offset the costs of those dinners with artist support, a silent auction for valuable sponsor prizes, a 50/50 raffle, individual donations and a canned food drive.
Donating their time, talent and pay will be:
Silent auction items throughout the weekend will include artwork by new Makin Waves resident artist Arroyo Art Studio, gift baskets from Bond Street Complex, The Brew TEA Spot – Cheryl Makin, Steeped Tea Consultant, and Russo Music Asbury Park, gift certificates and T-shirts from Langosta Lounge, Pop’s Garage Mexican Cantina, MOGO – Asbury Park, and Silverball Museum Arcade, and a signed book and T-shirt from Danny Clinch Transparent Gallery.
Boxes will be placed in front of each stage each night for individual monetary donations to Food for Thought and canned goods and other non-perishable food items. Each item donated to the food drive will be redeemed with one raffle ticket for the 50/50.
Many thanks to our generous and supportive artists, auction sponsors, and our media sponsors: The Aquarian Weekly, Asbury Music, Brookdale Public Radio, 90.5 The NIGHT, 1450 WCTC, Jersey Rock, New Jersey Stage, Radio Jersey… All Jersey All the Time!, Danny Coleman’s ROCK on RADIO, and WRAT 95.9FM!
Let’s band together to fight against hunger!
