For years, the Holiday Express Benefit Concert at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank has been a festive, fun holiday tradition for friends and family in our community. The Benefit concert has supported our 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 is taking place in a very different "virtual" way at each soup kitchen, shelter, specialized school and program for those with special needs. But we continue to fulfill our mission during these difficult times. 27,000 gift bags filled with essential personal items have been lovingly packed and delivered to each location. A ""virtual" concert is being enjoyed safely by all. We know that those desperately in need are depending on us and need our help now, more than ever.
Please join us for a special Holiday Express VIRTUAL Benefit Concert on Monday, December 21st at 7:00 PM. 100% of the proceeds from the Virtual Benefit Concert will support the programs of Holiday Express in the 2020 season. Join our founder, Tim McLoone, for a special VIRTUAL show from the comfort of your own home! This spectacular performance that will touch you with the spirit of the season.
We wish you a healthy and safe holiday season. Thank you for your support.
