Le Grand Fromage hosted three days of music, featuring about 100 bands, to raise funds for two local groups hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy.
According to the festival’s organizer, Jerry Ryan, the three-day festival (Nov. 16-18) raised about $2,200 from the door. (There was a $10 admission fee.)
Musicians from as far away as Boston and Washington D.C. came together for the “Re-Do AC” music benefit, which will assist the Brigantine Marine Mammal Stranding Center (Atlantic County) and the Ocean City Repertory Theatre (Cape May County) — each of which was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy.Atlantic County
“The money is going to help them rebuild,” says Ryan. “They both had a lot of damage. Brigantine is my hometown so I wanted to get involved and help the Stranding Center there.”
