Hollywood Comes to The Shore and Raises Over $40k for Sandy Relief

Sons For Sandy At The Paramount Theater

Last night, one of the most notorious biker gangs in the country invaded Asbury Park. Don’t worry, I’m not talking about an actual biker gang (or, as they prefer to be called, a “motorcycle club”), I’m talking about FX’s hit drama “Sons of Anarchy”. They were here to help with Sandy relief.

I had the chance to attend the event, which included a VIP pre-reception, a screening of this week’s new episode (sorry, no spoilers), a Q&A with the cast, and a musical performance by Katey Sagal, (also known as club matriarch, Gemma Teller).

As the show opened to a raucous sold out audience at The Paramount Theater in Asbury Park, series creator Kurt Sutter told the crowd that between general admission ticket sales, VIP sales, and the ultra-exclusive “VVIP” ticket sales, the evening generated over $40,000.

The proceeds will benefit The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and Staten Strong.

As an Ocean County resident who, like most of us, went through the very worst that Sandy threw at us, I’d like to personally thank Kurt Sutter, Katey Sagal, Kim “Tig Trager” Coates, and Theo “Juan Carlos ‘Juice’ Ortiz” Rossi for taking the time to visit the shore and helping to build awareness (and funds) for our continuing struggles and rebuilding efforts.
