2nd Annual Makin Waves Hunger Benefit for Food for Thought will help to feed the homeless with free music shows in November

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.
