The event on Jan. 14 honors Light of Day Foundation founder Bob Benjamin.
“I’m looking forward to Light of Day’s return to a vibrant Jersey scene,” said Benjamin in a press release. “The shows will heat up the cold, winter nights in Asbury Park, Red Bank, Montclair, Rockland County and New York City with hot live music. The January shows will be our 22nd year of fighting Parkinson’s with music and will also mark 22 years of celebrating my birthday with a concert.”
Adds Light of Day Foundation executive director Tony Pallagrosi: “We are overjoyed that after the trials and tribulations of the last two years we’re able to once again utilize the awesome power of live music to raise money and awareness in our 22 year battle to defeat Parkinson’s, ALS and PSP in our lifetime. We are so very grateful for the support that the Light Of Day Foundation has received throughout the years and we hope to see you all, old and new, and YES, LIVE AND IN PERSON, at WinterFest.”
“The return of Light of Day WinterFest is a tangible step in the right direction of getting life closer to normal and getting the LOD Foundation back to our yearly endeavors of raising funds and awareness in our fights against Parkinson’s, PSP and ALS,” said Light of Day Foundation board president Joe D’Urso.
