The event, titled “Dancing in the Dark,” will take place Sept. 28 at MCHA, with tickets going on sale Aug. 6 at 10 a.m.; visit springsteenhishometown.com. Food and drinks will be served, and there will also be an auction of “rare memorabilia and entertainment items,” according to a press release. MSNBC’s Brian William will serve as honorary chair.
Tickets are priced from $250 to $5,000, with proceeds benefiting the MCHA’s efforts to preserve and celebrate Monmouth County history.
