Asbury Park hosts benefit for Orlando victims

A fundraising benefit in Asbury Park will support victims of last week's terror attack in Orlando, Florida.



The Paradise nightclub in the Empress Hotel is hosting "AP for Pulse," named in honor of Orlando's Pulse club -- a gay nightclub where a gunman opened fire, killing 49 and injuring more than 50.



The event is open to the public and will feature performances overnight. 



Organizers say they want to show solidarity and support and raise money for the Orlando victims and their families. 



One of Pulse's promoters is driving to Asbury Park to attend the event.
