The concert for Sandy Relief is to benefit The Robin Hood Relief Fund which, the official page adds, “has launched a large-scale relief effort to aid our neighbors in the tri-state area whose lives have been shattered by Hurricane Sandy.”

“Now, one month out from the storm, thanks to our supporters, Robin Hood has been able to provide over $8 million in grants to more than 90 different groups.”
