As the tri-state region begins to recover from Sandy's stunning and acute

The Weinstein Company.

Thanks to the generosity of concert organizers, sponsors, and Robin Hood's
board of directors, every single penny from ticket purchases and donations
will go to serve the victims of Hurricane Sandy through the Robin Hood Relief
Fund. The Robin Hood Relief Fund provides money, material and know-how to
local organizations that are serving families and individuals in the regions
hardest hit by the storm.
