The brainchild of Mario Charles DePedro and Asher Bank, these two High School rising seniors have put together an afternoon of music and fun to benefit people in need of mental health services in this community.    These two lifetime friends have a shared love of music, and through their moms, best friends, who are jersey girls that grew up spending summers on the beach in Asbury and attending rock concerts at Convention Hall and the Casino Arena, love the jersey shore!
