Keansburg: Fundraiser for hurricane victims TONIGHT

(Press Release)

September 1, 2005

In light of the terrible tragedy which has struck Louisiana, Alabama and Mississip, the Borough of Keansburg is establishing a fund drive to help out the Hurricane Katrina victims.

"We have to do something," Deputy Mayor Drew Murray said. "To see this on the TV everyday and not do anything would be another tragedy. Whatever we can do, however much we can raise, the time is now. As Americans we help our own. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated by the ravaged communities."

The Mayor and Borough Council will be holding a fundraiser until September 14. Any monies collected will then be given directly to the disaster relief fund from the Borough of Keansburg.

Fundraising will begin tonight at a free concert by Disturbed The Nation at the Raritan Lot on Beachway, beginning at 7 pm. Another concert will be held tomorrow night as well at the same time and location.

"Local businesses are helping out however they can, sch as Home Run Embroidery, who has donated shirts to the Mayor and Council with 'Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund' printed on them to wear while they are collecting money," Murray said.

Monetary donations can also be droped off at, Borough Hall, 29 Church Street, Keansburg, NJ 07734
