POINT PLEASANT BEACH — Fresh from his humanitarian trip to the border of Poland and Ukraine, Mayor Paul Kanitra is putting together a charity concert at the Jersey Shore.

The mayor who was moved to make the trip on his own, told "Fox & Friends" that the concert will be Sunday, April 10 on the boardwalk at Jenkinson's from 4 to 8 p.m.

"The boardwalk is where a lot of the young Ukrainian adults actually work in the summertime and enjoy themselves and help keep our economy moving forward," Kanitra said.

He hopes it will raise at least $100,000 for Ukrainians.
