Rebuild Hoboken Gears Up for Star Studded Fundraiser
A gala will be held on February 2.
Rebuild Hoboken, the city's relief fund, is currently in the process of organizing its biggest event to date.
After receiving a $250,000 donation last week from Haven Savings Bank, the committee is now in the midst of preparing a star studded event at the W Hotel on February 2.
The Manzo Brothers — Hobokenites Albie and Chris — told The Dish that they will be present at the event, and may show up with more family members.
According to Jackie Burton, who is on the Rebuild Hoboken committee, said the organizers are currently "reviewing teams, traffic flow, décor, required staff numbers and starting a list of what celebrities could be approached to attend."
Hobokenites can attend the event, tickets will be available at multiple price points.
CBS entertainment reporter Katie McGee will be the emcee of the event, Burton said.
Sandy victims in Hoboken can apply for money from the Rebuild Hoboken fund until January 20, although that is a flexible deadline, Chairman Bernie Kenny said. The goal is to get money to affected Hobokenites by February, Kenny said.
