Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini has accepted a contribution for the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund from a Rumson Country Day School student who organized a benefit concert to raise money for the fund.
Angelini, who filled in for New Jersey first lady Mary Pat Christie, praised the student, Max Kyrillos for his efforts to help those impacted by the storm.
“I am so impressed by such selfless acts of kindness and compassion from Max and everyone else that helped make this event such a success,” Angelini said. “The funds raised by this benefit concert will be incredibly useful in the efforts to restore our shore.”
Kyrillos, who also performed in the concert as part of the band Stone Bullets, presented a check for $3,325 to the fund. Also performing at the May 17 concert were Going Under, Ardvark Smile and Pat Guadagno.
“I applaud all the bands and students involved in making this benefit concert a success,” Mary Pat Christie said. “We are thankful to Max, the Rumson Country Day School and all those who generously donated to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. Young people like Max are an inspiration to all New Jerseyans.”
The Sandy Relief fund allocates resources to nonprofits and community organizations that are aiding in the rebuilding and recovery efforts of communities across New Jersey that were affected by the hurricane.
