December 21, 2021

The Holiday Express Benefit Concert at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank has been festive, fun holiday tradition for friends and family in our community for years. A Jersey Shore tradition, the acclaimed philanthropic group brings its “Ultimate Holiday Show” with its unique mixture of traditional, gospel and rock ‘n soul holiday music that will touch you with the spirit of the season.

The Benefit Concerts support Holiday Express holiday programs delivering the gift of human kindness to those who need it most – 27,000 individuals in 100 locations across New Jersey, in New York and in Philadelphia.  Holiday Express works year round to deliver music, food, gifts and human kindness to adults and children who are often forgotten, including the mentally and physically challenged, veterans, the isolated, individuals in addiction and recovery programs, the poor and the homeless, and children with serious illnesses.

In 2020, the 28th season of Holiday Express took place in a very different “virtual” way at each soup kitchen, shelter, specialized school and program for those with special needs.  But we successfully fulfilled our mission during these difficult times. 27,000 gift bags filled with essential personal items were lovingly packed and delivered to each location. A “”virtual” concert was shared and enjoyed safely by clients and staff alike.
