Hoboken Relief Fund Love Local concert is May 16

On Saturday May 16 at 6 p.m. everyone is invited to a virtual concert as part of Hoboken’s efforts to raise money for the Hoboken Relief Fund.

Last weekend, City Council President Jen Giattino, Councilman Phil Cohen, and Mayor Ravi Bhalla announced the fund to support independently-owned Hoboken businesses and Hoboken residents who have been negatively impacted economically due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Love Local concert will be hosted by Bhalla and Hoboken’s Cake Boss Buddy Valastro.

According to a promotional video created by Branding Shorts, the concert will feature performances by The Cucumbers, Polka Dot, Julio Fernandez, and more.

To watch the virtual concert go to Facebook.com/hoboken at 6 p.m.

Hoboken hopes to raise at least $2 million.
