Haiti Relief Benefit at The Bell House

This Wednesday, it was my pleasure to participate in a benefit concert for Haiti relief efforts at the Bell House in Brooklyn. 

The event raised funds for two amazing organizations, Save the Children and Partners in Health that have been providing direct medical care, as well as assisting the most vulnerable victims of this disaster, the children. 

I got the chance to hang out backstage with Jimmy Fallon, who did a spot-on imitation of Neil Young and chat with NY1 morning anchor Pat Keirnan.  I was also very excited to meet the Wahoo Skiffle Crazies, Staten Island's own traditional "jug band"--yet another reason to come visit the Island.  Other bands included, the Wrens and the Walkmen. 

All told, we raised more than $30,000! All proceeds went to the organizations.  If you'd like to learn more about Save the Children and Partners in Health, please click here:
