Atlantic City, NJ (April 18, 2023) – In advance of their concert performance at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, members of the rock band Chicago met with Hard Rock Atlantic City President George Goldhoff for a $10,000 check presentation for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
Chicago band members and Goldhoff came together at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena, Atlantic City’s leading entertainment venue, where Chicago performed Saturday night to a sold out crowd.
On April 27th, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey will host “Night of 300,000 Meals” to raise funds necessary to provide 300,000 meals to the nearly 70,000 South Jersey residents who are food insecure, and to support other vital programs serving South Jersey including nutrition education, diaper and feminine hygiene product distribution, resource access outreach and a College Pantry program.
Hard Rock Atlantic City has been a longtime supporter of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and President George Goldhoff says the mission of the organization is essential for the well-being of thousands of residents in the region.
“Hard Rock Atlantic City is proud to highlight the important work of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and we appreciate the support of the members of Chicago, who have taken the time to understand the importance about the needs in our community,” said Goldhoff.
“Night of 300,000 Meals” brings together chefs and community members for an evening enjoying fine fare, fun spirits, and live music. Local chefs and restaurants will share a sample of a signature dish for guests to enjoy. Guests will have the opportunity to tour the Community FoodBank in Egg Harbor Township, capable of holding a maximum of 1.6 million pounds of food, and Community Assistance Pantry which serves more than 1,000 local families monthly.
