State Farm Neighborhood Sessions: JLO LIVE @ Orchard Beach, Pelham Bay Park (BX)
Wednesday, June 4, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
State Farm Neighborhood Sessions celebrates the power of good neighbors with a series of live concert and neighborhood celebrations that bring the biggest names in music back to where they came from, to thank the neighbors who inspired greatness in them and continue to do good every day. Session #1 kicks off on June 4 with Jennifer Lopez in the Bronx, NY. State Farm is bringing Jenny back to the block for an evening of food, fun, neighborly love, and an electrifying live performance at Orchard Beach in Pelham Bay Park, for 25,000 fans and good neighbors.
Each State Farm Neighborhood Session will be as distinctive as the community it visits, bringing people together with the help of the local charities, artists, and businesses that make each neighborhood unique. The performing artist returning will shine a light on their neighborhood, take us on a journey that explores the people, places, and experiences that makes that neighborhood great, and leave a lasting impact in the community by partnering with local charitable organizations based on the need of that neighborhood.
Proceeds from "Premiere Partner Zone" tickets (non tax-deductible) will go to local Bronx organizations giving back to their community and working to create an even better Bronx.
Please support our community partners!
