.
On Tuesday Bon Jovi Donates $1 Million To Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund was a top story. Here is the recap: Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi revealed yesterday that the group has donated $1 million dollars to Hurricane Sandy relief in the singer's home state of New Jersey.

The money was donated to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, which is chaired by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's wife Mary Pat Christie.

Jon Bon Jovi said, "Natural disasters spare no one. But you can't imagine the devastation, destruction and despair until Mother Nature takes aim at your hometown.

"This is bittersweet; it's heartbreaking to see our fellow New Jerseyans so affected by the ravages of Hurricane Sandy but we're happy to make this donation and offer real, substantial help to the residents of Sayreville and the nearby, low-lying communities as they rebuild their homes and lives."

The donation ceremony took place in Jon Bon Jovi's hometown of Sayreville at the Sayreville Borough Hall. The singer, governor and his wife, the mayor of the town and other officials were in attendance.

Governor Christie said, "This incredibly generous donation from Bon Jovi to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund will go a long way in the rebuilding process.

"From day one, Jon has been one of the most visible faces for Sandy recovery here in his hometown of Sayreville and throughout the entire state.

"On behalf of a grateful people, I thank Jon and Bon Jovi for all of the great work they've done for New Jersey."
