Tonight, August 13, the Crossroads, located at 78 North Avenue in Garwood will host a “Battle of the Bands” to benefit the Kessler Foundation.

The battle starts at 6:30p.m. and ends at midnight.

Dara Alfano, a 23-year-old young woman from Roselle Park, organized the event. “I’m trying to make a difference in the world,” she said, “Kessler Foundation is a wonderful organization that gives so much and helps people with disabilities regain their abilities and independence. I’m willing to help in any way possible.”

There is a $7 cover charge to listen to three bands: Matt Koziol, Go Falcon, and The Nightlife. Crossroads also offers food and cocktails. Friends can enjoy a night out while supporting Kessler Foundation and its mission to make discoveries that change the lives of people with disabilities.

Last year at Kessler Foundation’s 9th Annual Stroll ‘N Roll, Dara raised $1,000 from sponsors to benefit the mission. She also brought a team of friend with her to walk the family fun 5K.

Kessler Foundation Program Center has provided more than $20 million in funding to a variety of employment-related projects that are benefitting veterans, young adults, students and others who are dealing with physical and cognitive disabilities. Kessler Foundation, the largest public charity supporting people with disabilities, is based in West Orange, New Jersey.
