I have been incredibly fortunate in my life to never have to experience the difficulties I see in the world every day. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a child with special needs, let alone raising one. The Elks have been running their Special Needs Children's Fund since the 1940's. The organization has done amazing things and with our efforts, they are able to do more..


With that desire in my heart, I preside over Hoboken All Star Music Jam. We’re all looking to make a difference in our world and I believe that by focusing on the children, we’re going to make the most substantial impact. The world is made up of these important social connections and if you foster them positively, they’ll pay huge dividends - in love, care, and a better world.

Mission & Vision

We have a simple, but robust mission: to help children in need. We do that by supporting the Hoboken Elks community-based efforts including education, awareness, and support. We want to make a difference.


If you have able hands, we want your help. Whether it's helping with the show, working with the marketing team, or collecting donations, boosters, and sponsors, we need you. And so do the children in need.
