NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The stars are coming out to help raise money to fight the coronavirus pandemic. “Jersey 4 Jersey” will be a special live entertainment event that’s taking place next Wednesday.

  1. I was in Ohio when I heard about this on Howard Stern this past week in a rental car. I come home to Alabama turn in my rental car. Tune in at 6 pm on my ABC affiliate here. No benefit show. I was the one to to tell my husband about this event! We were so disappointed and our hopes were lowered. My husband and I were so sorry to have missed this one. Are there any plans to re-televise this benefit nationwide any time soon, maybe for the first responders?
