UNION BEACH - A free music festival was held today in Union Beach, a community that was hard hit by Superstorm Sandy.

The Concert for Union Beach, featuring live and local music acts, started as a dream for Donald Burke, the organizer of the day’s festivities. After the storm hit in late-October, he felt like there was more he could do to help residents whose homes were washed away.

Along with the many local performers, a 50/50 raffle was held and UB Strong sold T-shirts and athletic gear. The fundraising effort tallied $6,000 for Union Beach Sandy victims.

Anyone interested in donating to UB Strong can email UBStrong2012@gmail.com.
