Prentiss McNeil of the R & B Group The Drifters will be there to perform one of our all time favorites “Stand By Me.”
More talent will be announced as the list grows.
As the tragic stories from the hurricane hit the airwaves, Music Power NY Founder, Greg Jagenburg, a world champion swimmer and Long Islander, said, “We need a miracle! What is the purpose of a charitable foundation if we do nothing to help these people living in our back yard? They give us a reason to do this concert, but we need help in making this night a success as we cannot do it alone.”
Jagenburg turned to his friend Ray Negron, for help. Negron is Special Advisor to the New York Yankees, and he is also a New York Times best-selling author. To make this Hurricane Relief Benefit Concert one that people will never forget, Negron who is deeply rooted in community service is donating all royalties for the month of November and December from his book Yankee Miracles, to help those in immediate need of assistance. The book and his famed children’s books will be available at the event. Negron said, “We need sponsor help desperately to make this event a bigger success. We are asking that people support this event and rally behind a most serious cause to help the people of New York who frantically need it in terms of food, clothing, and whatever else we can help with by raising enough money through tickets and raffles. Now is the time for us to feel an urgency to stick together as one.”
Two major foundations will play a very important role in assisting those in need, The Dominican Sisters of Sparkill who focus on those in need including the sick, the hungry, the elderly and the oppressed along with Island Harvest, one of the largest hunger relief organization in New York.
