ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

While Pink gave fans good vibes with her performance at last week's Atlantic City BeachFest Concert Series, a well-known entertainment company put smiles on other people's faces by giving them a financial contribution.

Officials from Live Nation, the company that helped put on the successful show, handed over a $30,000 check to representatives from the Boys and Girls Club of Atlantic City. 

"This money is an unexpected gift," said Maryann McElroy, director of development for the organization. "It will be used to re-open our Chelsea Club, which we had to close after Hurricane Sandy."

One dollar for each ticket sold was allotted to go to the Boys and Girls Club, which added up to a tremendous amount of money. 

"The donation will help our after-school program, which is for children ages 5 to 12," said McElroy, "and it will help fund our core programs which we use to provide service to 150 children."

On Wednesday, July 12th, pop-star and Philly-area native Pink (Alecia Beth Moore) headlined the concert that was considered a success to many.

City officials and residents were thrilled to have Pink kick off the 2017 BeachFest Concert Series especially since this show was her only East Coast stop on her current tour.
