Benefit Event for the Marine Mammal Stranding Center
Bob and Sheila have been doing great things at the MMSC for many years now, and there certainly isn't a more worthy charity that musicians and entertainers can support, especially those at the Jersey Shore where the Stranding Center has been maintaining their watch.
At one time Bob trained the dolphins to jump through hoops at Steel Pier in Atlantic City and recognized the need for such a service and facility and they have selflessly provided it for the past few decades, supported primarily through donations, sales of t-shirts, golf tournaments and the occasional fund raiser - and hell raisers like this one.
The Stone Pony is a great and historic venue for such a show, but I what I want to know is how come all of the acts scheduled to perform are from North Jersey and none, as far as I can see, are from the South Jersey Shore where the Center is located? Hopefully someday the South Jersey Shore bands will recognize that they too should contribute some of their time and talent to such a great enterprise.

We have scoured the planet and brought together a collection of the most talented and amazing musicians the Jersey Shore has ever seen.
More importantly, these bands have all donated their time and their great talent to help raise awareness and funds for the Marine Mammal Stranding Center.

The Center, located in Brigantine, NJ is dedicated to responding to marine mammals and sea turtles in distress along all of New Jersey’s waterways and to the rehabilitation of these animals for release back into the wild.
In situations where animals may not be re-released, every effort is made to secure a proper, enriching facility to provide lifetime care. They are further committed to the well-being of marine mammals and to inspire responsible stewardship of our oceans through educational programs and collaboration. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is a private non-profit organization based in Brigantine, New Jersey.
Since the Center’s founding in 1978, staff and volunteers have responded to over 4,000 calls for whales, dolphins, seals and sea turtles that washed ashore on New Jersey beaches. These animals range from a five pound Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle to a 25-ton Humpback Whale (both of which are endangered species).
