Proceeds to benefit the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen

Trenton, NJ.... After raising over $15,000 for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen at last year's concert, The 15th Annual Ernie White Band and Friends Christmas Benefit Concert is on!

For the past 14 years Trenton's legendary guitar rocker, Ernie White and his band have spearheaded this rockin' Christmas concert with the help of an all-star, "Who's Who" cast of area musicians. This annual event has raised over a $100,000 for local charities.

Special thanks to last year’s surprise guests Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi and
Don Dazzo from The Whirling Dervishes!

In the past, the show has raised funds for organizations such as Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund, Trenton Head Start, Mercer Street Friends, New York Times 9/11 Fund, Hamilton Elks Handicapped Children's Fund, Casa, Contact (Suicide Prevention Hot
Line), ARC Mercer, Boys And Girls Club of Trenton, YWCA of
Trenton, Musicians of New Orleans Fund and Trenton Area Soup Kitchen.

Proceeds from ticket sales and donations will once again "come home" to help our friends at The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen who help our neighbors in need.

So don't miss this fun night of holiday rock & roll, served up Trenton style, and give a helping hand to those who need it most.
