Dewey Beach Concert to Benefit N.J. Hurricane Victims
DEWEY BEACH, Del.- Organizers are finishing final preparations for a concert to benefit areas in New Jersey hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy.
Delaware Coast Aid is scheduled for Thursday night at the Rusty Rudder in Dewey Beach. The event will include several bands, food and drinks, a live auction and kids activities, with most proceeds heading to neighboring New Jersey.
"We can relate as a community to those communities up there," said organizer Chip Thompson. "We can just appreciate how lucky we were not to have been impacted the way they were."
Thompson said one group set to perform, the E Street Shuffle Band, has a personal connection to the destruction.
"A couple of the band members lost their homes and they're donating their time to come down here," said Thompson. "They're going to be the headlining band."
Organizers will distribute the money through Rebuild Recover, a New Jersey nonprofit group.
The Center for the Inland Bays, a nonprofit group, has partnered with Delaware organizers for the event. Roughly 10 percent of the proceeds will go to repair of coastal habitats in Sussex County impacted by the storm.
Organizers are hoping to sell up to 1,000 tickets, which are available at the door. Tickets for adults 21 and up are $25. For those under 21, tickets are $10; children 12 and under are free. The event is scheduled to begin Thursday at 6 p.m.
