Summer Wishes at the Jersey Shore

June 11 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

On Sunday June 11th, the Fahey family and Reef & Barrel Beach Bar & Grill in Manasquan, New Jersey will host their second talent-packed live music event benefiting Make-A-Wish New Jersey, Summer Wishes at the Jersey Shore. The event is produced and directed by vocalist Michael Patrick Dominick of Wall Township, New Jersey, joined by nearly a dozen additional talented musicians and accompanying singers from throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut. Led by Robby Schwartz, the band will perform three hours of live musical entertainment and 100% of contributions will be donated to Make-A-Wish New Jersey, to help create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

This event is generously hosted by Reef & Barrel Beach Bar & Grill, and the Fahey family.

Michael Patrick Dominick and Robby Schwartz, along with band residents Joey D’Alessio and Chris Finelli, have been collaborating on and producing live music events throughout the tristate area for nearly two decades, cumulatively raising nearly $100,000 for Make-A-Wish chapters. Michael’s family experienced the life-changing power of a wish in 1992 when his younger brother Matthew, who courageously battled a brain tumor, was granted his wish to travel to the Walt Disney World Resort. The experience served as a welcome respite to their entire family and since then, with the help of countless friends and talented performers over the years, they have helped raise funds to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses for Make-A-Wish in the New Jersey, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Syracuse, and New York city regions. Michael’s brother Matthew, now cancer-free, will join the band on Sunday, June 11th as a guest singer and pianist.
