“When we first explored the concept of EarthShare NJ Rocks, we weren’t sure what would happen," said EarthShare NJ Executive Director Paula Aldarelli. "Since then, attendance has tripled each year and the talent that donates their time to raise money and awareness for our environment gets better and better."
The bands are taking part in the benefit to help bring about a cleaner, greener and healthier New Jersey. There is a distinct connection between our environment and the arts, especially music. The proceeds of this evening go to ESNJ’s non-profit members for education programs and conservation efforts supporting air, water, land and wildlife across New Jersey. Tickets are available for purchase online.
