The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City President and classic rock band support an upcoming fundraising event, aiming to provide 300,000 meals in New Jersey.

On April 27, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey will be hosting an event called “Night of 300,000 Meals,” with the aim of fundraising the means to provide 300,000 meals to nearly 70,000 residents of south Jersey who struggle with access to food. The event will also support other programs that provide nutrition education, distribute diapers and feminine products, and do outreach work with the College Pantry.

Last weekend, rock band Chicago performed a soldout show to Atlantic City’s Etess Arena, before coming together with Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City President, George Goldhoff, to show their support for the community. Hard Rock Atlantic City has supported the Community FoodBank of New Jersey for years.

Goldoff said, "Hard Rock Atlantic City is proud to highlight the important work of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and we appreciate the support of the members of Chicago, who have taken the time to understand the importance about the needs in our community.

"Night of 300,000 Meals" brings together chefs and community members for an evening enjoying fine fare, fun spirits, and live music.  Local chefs and restaurants will share a sample of a signature dish for guests to enjoy. 

“Guests will have the opportunity to tour the Community FoodBank in Egg Harbor Township, capable of holding a maximum of 1.6 million pounds of food, and Community Assistance Pantry which serves more than 1,000 local families monthly.”

Goldhoff also said the foodbank’s mission is “essential for the wellbeing of thousands of residents in the region.”
