In a time when social distancing keeps us apart, there is still a need for communities to come together. Many of the most vulnerable segments of New Jersey are in desperate need of help right now. The newly formed New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund (NJPRF) is helping combat COVID-19’s medical, social, and economic impact.
As part of their ongoing relief efforts, NJPRF is hosting “JERSEY 4 JERSEY,” a broadcast TV fundraising event on April 22. The evening, which kicks off at 7:00 pm, will honor those working on the front lines; our health care workers, first responders, and essential employees. In addition, the star-studded event will feature an array of your favorite New Jersey celebrities.

This list includes Saquon Barkley, Tony Bennett, Jon Bon Jovi, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Halsey, Chelsea Handler, Charlie Puth, Kelly Ripa, Chris Rock, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart and SZA; all of whom will remotely participate from their homes as they take part in social distancing, of course.
“New Jersey is on the front lines of this pandemic, making it more important than ever for us to do what Jersey does best – take care of one another,” says New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy. “That’s why we’re asking everyone in our state to join the NJPRF and some of New Jersey’s finest for some much-needed musical entertainment, levity, and Jersey Pride during these unprecedented times.”
You can catch JERSEY 4 JERSEY live on the Apple Music and AppleTV apps; as well as on the SiriusXM “E Street Radio” channel, which is currently free on the SiriusXM app.
The special event will also air on local TV channels like WABC Channel 7, WPVI 6ABC, WPIX, and News12. For the full list of where you can watch and listen, visit the website. Don’t forget to join in and follow along on social media with the hashtag #jersey4jersey.

To date, the organization has raised over $20 million, 100% of which goes to local organizations providing essential services.
