  • Free concert series helps connect music and causes

    The Hoboken Family Alliance and its newly created College Scholarship Fund will be the proud recipients of a benefit concert performed by the Guitar Bar All-Stars on Thursday Nov. 10 at Mulligan's.

    Guitar Bar All-Stars Hour of Power is the latest musical number to join the The musical Mile Square, home to great bands, singers, venues and musical stores like Guitar Bar.  The free concert series run monthly at Mulligan’, 159 1st Street, s and is the brainchild of longtime Hoboken resident and business owner, James Mastro. He opened Guitar Bar on 1st Street in 1996 and Guitar Bar Jr. on 11th Street a year ago. He created the concerts as a way to connect residents and causes using the power of live music. “Hoboken is all about community and we think this is a great way to bring this town together even more.”

    The show is free but Mastro and his band help encourage contributions the old-fashioned way – passing a hat.  Proceeds will go toward three scholarships to local high-school students attending college next fall. Get out with friends for a fun, local night and help contribute to the College Scholarship Fund.

     

     


  • Teen Mentoring Event

    To my neighbors in Hoboken:

    My name is David Lambert and I am writing to invite you to an important gathering in Hoboken, NJ on March 5th. The theme of the event is Mentoring. The centerpiece of the evening will be a screening of the film Journeyman, a one-hour documentary about two teenage boys and the impact that mentoring has on their lives.

    My goal is to create a discussion about the importance of mentoring in our evolving community, and I’d like you to be part of this event!

    About the event:
    You are invited to a screening and discussion at All Saints Episcopal Parish, at 701 Washington Street in Hoboken, NJ. Please join everyone at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 5. In addition to the general public, I am inviting many people from many local and state organizations, from the town Board of Ed and local youth groups to the NJ Division of Youth and Family Services, as well as mentoring organizations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Boys to Men and iMentor.

    This is a non-denominational event. Light snacks will be provided. A suggested donation of $5 will cover the costs of screening the film. Continue reading  Post ID 2425
