Want to become an honorary member of Bon Jovi while helping feed New Jersey families? The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, which works to combat hunger is holding a fundraising contest. The lucky winner will get to sing with Jon at sound check (hopefully, he or she is better prepared than the karaoke singers Jon recently surprised), ride in the Bon Jovi tour bus, dine with the band and get backstage passes and a signed guitar. Basically, you’ll become the band’s fifth member.
To enter, make a donation to the JBJ Soul Foundation campaign. A $10 donation will get you 100 entries, but if you make a larger donation, you’ll get some additional goodies. $25 will get you a digital thank you card from Jon while an autographed Takamine EF341c guitar $20,000 donation can be yours with a $20,000 donation.
While you’re waiting for the winner to be revealed, visit the JBJ Soul Kitchen in either Red Bank or Toms River. These community restaurants make a difference by allowing “in-need diners” to volunteer at the restaurant to pay for their meals and giving paying customers the opportunity to pay more than the suggested donation.
The contest deadline is November 17.
