Pat Benatar Rocks Westbury for Sandy Victims

Raising funds for victims of Superstorm Sandy, Benatar rocked Westbury's NYCB Theatre Friday night...

Pat Benatar, a Lindenhurst native, rocked a packed theater at Westbury’s NYCB Theatre on Friday night to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy. The concert raised funds for the Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, the Lindenhurst Fire Department and The Village of Lindenhurst Relief Fund.

Many of Benatar’s friends, family and plenty of Lindenhurst locals were there as she played hits like Heartbreaker, Promises in the Dark, We Belong, All Fired Up, River of Love, Hit Me with Your Best Shot, Love is a Battlefield and Let’s Stay Together, with her husband and guitarist Neil Giraldo.

"As soon as we got a minute we came right here, and tonight we're raising a lot of money that'll go to all local relief funds. We're very happy about that. Tonight's also about having fun, and forgetting everything for a night," she said.

Mayor Tom Brennan, Village Administrators and Trustees and the LFD Chief Jim Gallagher were in attendance along with volunteers from the LFD and a slew of classmates from Benatar’s high school class of 1971.

Her and her husband were given LFD sweatshirts with their names on them as well as keys to the Village and a proclamation that declared Saturday, January 26, 2013, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo Day in the Village. Benatar thank everyone who helped put together the concert as well as all the volunteers who have been working tirelessly to bring some sense of normalcy back to the worst hit residents in Lindenhurst.

"One day this is in the news, then it's on to the next story, and no one remembers. Don't forget about what happened. It's important to stick together because it's all you have. Be good to each other," she said.


"On behalf of the Village all those affected by Sandy, we thank you for doing this concert and for helping us work to get one day closer to normal," Brennan told Benatar.

It was a fantastic show, I am from upstate NY and I went to the concert with my sister in law and I was happy to hear that the money was finally going to help victims of Sandy.  Great job, Pat and Neil, as always!  You are true rockers!

@Joy and Kathy
 
She was great! Glad I went, as I almost didn't (had other possible plans). Still has such a powerful voice.

Heartbreaker and We Belong are on my playlist, and no I'm not ashamed to admit it. Though I am a bit ashamed of the Hall&Oates LOL!
