Bono, singer for U2, has become a member of the Honorary Advisory Board for the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. The pop crooner joins fellow stars Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi on the charitable panel.
"It's an honor to be asked to support the governor [Chris Christie] and first lady in this ongoing effort," Bono said in an official statement.
"New Jersey is always a highlight of any U2 tour," he continued. "What's inspiring about the New Jersey relief effort are not the names on the Board, which I'm humbled to serve with, but the volunteers who have rallied all over the state, in fact all over the tri-state area."
Mary Pat Christie, Jersey's First Lady, added that the "dollars we have raised will support organizations on the front lines of the recovery effort and address the unmet needs of New Jersey communities."
