On Sunday, October 9, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark will host its 5th Annual Benefit Concert for the Homeless at St. Philomena Church in Livingston. All proceeds from the event will help to fund the homeless programs and services of the agency that provides assistance to thousands of individuals and families in need.
The Drive-In Concert will offer a variety of family/kid friendly activities (face painting, magicians, balloon artists, etc.) along with a full concert by New Jersey’s own “The Nerds” – a widely acclaimed rock and roll band. Food trucks will be available but folks are encouraged to tailgate as well.
Registered participants get a parking space with an adjoining space to set –up chairs, etc. Each car can carry up to 6 occupants and parking spaces are priced at $300, $175 & $125 based on their proximity to the stage.
