Lou and Liz, along with Nicole and Matt, will all be broadcasting live from Red Bank for Giving Tuesday!

Lou and I will be kicking off a day of giving that will last throughout the morning, afternoon, and evening from the Count Basie Center for the Arts.

We would love to meet you and your kids, so stop by starting at 5:30 am to say hi, hang out, see an awesome performance from local teens in the Jazz Arts Academy between 7 am and 8 am, and hopefully take advantage of ticket sales for some amazing upcoming Basie shows that will also benefit a worthy cause and make a donation for this great cause:

This year's Giving Tuesday will help first responders in Monmouth and Ocean counties. $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the 200 Clubs of Monmouth and Ocean, two nonprofits dedicatedto providing financial assistance to the families of our public safety and rescue personnel who have been killed in the line of duty, including police officers, firefighters, and EMT technicians in our area.

For first responders in Monmouth and Ocean Counties: The Basie Center, 94.3 The Point/Townsquare Media, and Citi are proud to offer Monmouth and Ocean County first responders and their families tickets to any upcoming Count Basie Center for the Arts holiday performance!!!!!
