As the tri-state region fully realizes the true scope of Sandy's stunning and
acute devastation on the coastal areas of Long Island, Queens, particularly
Breezy Point and the Rockaways, Staten Island and New Jersey, the enormous
task of rebuilding both the infrastructure and thousands of shattered lives
becomes dauntingly clear. Robin Hood - New York City's largest poverty
fighting organization - has re-established the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which
it spearheaded following 9/11, to help those most affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The needs are enormous: Sandy has created a devastating short and long-term
housing crisis, with tens of thousands of people, including many
first-responders, in need of significant rebuilding assistance. Many victims
of Sandy are undocumented, non-English speaking residents who are especially
vulnerable during a crisis, particularly relating to navigating complicated
insurance and legal requirements. Thousands of New York City schoolchildren
have lost essential tools, such as books, computers and supplies, while also
enduring displacement, with their schools either damaged or turned into
emergency shelters. Food banks throughout the region are struggling to
maintain their daily complement of services, as they dramatically increase
their operations to feed the huge influx of people affected by the storm.
Additionally, the psychological scars of Sandy will linger for years to come,
with those affected in need of ongoing emotional counseling and support.

"12-12-12" will be produced by James Dolan, Executive Chairman of The Madison
Square Garden Company; John Sykes, President of Clear Channel Entertainment
Enterprises; and Harvey Weinstein, Co-Founder and Chairman of The Weinstein
Company. In a joint statement Messrs. Dolan, Sykes and Weinstein said: "The
Concert for New York City was a night filled with emotion, courage and
tremendous hope when we came together as a city following the 9/11 attack.
Once again, our city, as well as millions of our neighbors in the tri-state
area, are in desperate need of our assistance as they recover from Hurricane
Sandy and rebuild their lives. We have no doubt that the event we are planning
will be filled with unforgettable music, entertainment and that uniquely
American spirit of community, compassion and generosity."

Tickets for the concert will be available at a variety of price levels,
ranging from individual tickets to special VIP packages. Ticket information
and more details regarding the concert will be released in the coming days.

All money raised from the concert will be administered through the Robin Hood
Relief Fund, which was established by the Robin Hood Foundation, with funds to
be distributed to hyper-local charitable organizations around the tri-state
area; and other charities directly benefiting those affected by Hurricane
Sandy.
