The members of the Chicago band and Goldhoff met in Atlantic City's top entertainment location, Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena, where Chicago played Saturday night to a sold-out crowd.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey will host 'Night of 300,000 Meals' on 27 April to raise money for providing 300,000 meals to the nearly 70,000 residents of South Jersey who are short of food. They will also support other crucial programs such as nutrition education, distribution of diapers and feminine hygiene products, resource access outreach and a college pantry program.

George Goldhoff, a longtime supporter of FoodBank of New Jersey and President, said: "Hard Rock Atlantic City is proud to highlight the important work of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and we appreciate the support of the members of Chicago, who have taken the time to understand the importance about the needs in our community.”

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood recently announced they would host the Janet Jackson tour and memorabilia prior to the auction.

Keith Sheldon, President of Entertainment for Hard Rock International, said: "This opportunity to honour the musical legend Janet Jackson at our Hard Rock properties in such a meaningful way is extremely exciting for us and all of our guests that will get to experience it.”
