The evening will feature food from many of Hoboken’s finest restaurants, drinks courtesy of Sparrow Wine & Liquor, plus Live and Silent Auctions filled with dozens of spectacular items and experiences to bid on in every price range.

Steven Bailey, owner of D’s Soul Full Cafe in Hoboken is hosting the 4th Annual Global Fund for Women Benefit in Hoboken. The event is on April 7th at Maxwell’s. Details are below in his email below….
Hey Everyone,

I am honored to be hosting the fourth-annual Global Fund for Women Benefit show on April 7, 2012 at Maxwell’s in Hoboken.

I don’t ever get tired of saying that I’m hosting another Global Fund for Women Benefit. Each year the party gets better and better — and all for a great cause. The 4th-annual Concert to Benefit Global Fund for Women will be held once again at historic Maxwell’s in Hoboken. Taking place on Saturday April 7 2012, the show will feature performances by New Day Dawn, The Nico Blues, clueLess Allstars, and Motorboat.

As always, this year’s event was organized by musician Nelson Pla and presented by Clueless Events. The GFW Benefit Concerts continue to bring awareness to — and raise money for — the work of The Global Fund for Women and I’m proud to be involved again.

Event Details:

  • GFW2012: Concert to Benefit Global Fund for Women

Founded in 1987, this nonprofit organization defends women’s rights by making grants to support women’s groups. They promote the economic security, health, safety, education and leadership of women and girls worldwide.

Discount Parking Available:

Now we all know how hard it can be to park in Hoboken. Luckily, Maxwell’s offers discounted parking at two nearby garages. The closest lot is located at 1125 Maxwell Lane. You must enter this lot before 10PM (you can exit anytime). Buy vouchers at the bar. $5 gets you 3 hours of parking. You can buy multiple vouchers. When leaving the parking lot, first put the parking ticket into the machine THEN the voucher.

You can also park at the Park On Park lot at 1415 Park Ave. The entrance is on 15th Street (left off of Park as you come into town). You may enter/exit at any time. For this place, you purchase parking stickers from the bartenders. $5 (one sticker) is good for
3 hours, $10 (2 stickers) purchases 7 hours of parking. When exiting the lot, show the parking attendant the stickers on your receipt and they will qualify as payment.

Spread the word and help us rock out for a great cause.
