Bon Jovi Gives Big Check To Home State For Superstorm Sandy Recovery

Posted on Jul 8 2013 - 7:51pm by Danity Donnaly


Bon Jovi has some big love for their home state of New Jersey and they proved so with their recent appearance in Sayreville, NJ. On Monday, Jon Bon Jovi presented a check for ONE MILLION dollars to Governor Chris Christie’s wife Mary Pat who is overseeing the Superstorm Sandy relief fund.

The donation ceremony was held in front of Sayreville’s Borough Hall and brought many people to cheers, especially considering Bon Jovi is an active Democratic supporter.

But the band’s donation has nothing to do with affiliation. Bon Jovi said, “My being here is not political, it’s emotional, because I grew up here. I went to school here. I met my wife here.”

He also added that he wants to do what he can do to help for the town that has suffered through THREE severe floods since 2010.
