Pink‘s connection to New Jersey goes much deeper than you may realize … turns out, the state is part of her DNA. Which is why she’s just one of the stars lending their support to MTV’s “Restore The Shore,” a live benefit with nonprofit organization Architecture for Humanity that aims to help the recovery effort in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, one of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy.
“Whenever you think of the Jersey Shore, you either think of that TV show, or you think about the beautiful boardwalks, the gorgeous beaches, or the fact that my mom grew up in Atlantic City, and she remembers the diving horses and Ventnor [Pier] and all these beautiful places,” Pink says in a message recorded for the special. “Please do whatever you can to restore this beautiful memory that, for most people in Seaside Heights right now, is just a memory.”
“Restore The Shore” will air live on MTV tonight at 11 p.m. ET, and will feature appearances by the cast of “Jersey Shore” from MTV’s Times Square studio — as well as cameos by other celebs — all of whom will be asking viewers to contribute to the rebuilding and restoration of Seaside Heights.
