Volunteer efforts are underway in Central Jersey today to produce a charity Christmas CD this season. The local media company is announcing the charity that will benefit from this year's CD sales, and releasing a portion of the track list.
The Christmas CD, this year produced by parent company of WBNC News, photography and audio company Wolverton Media, features contributions by accomplished pianists, singers, and other musicians, and highlights your favorite classic songs and medleys, and can be purchased at WolvertonMedia.com.
Past charities that have benefited from the sales of these CDs have been Samaritan's Purse and Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund. This year's charity is the Manny L. Friedman Foundation, which raises funds for important no kill animal shelters.
"All monies go to the animal shelters," said President Susan Friedman and Vice President Sam Friedman while filming an informational video at Wolverton Media Studios yesterday to help promote the CD. "None [are] used for administrative costs."
Ave Maria, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, O Holy Night, and White Christmas are just some of the exciting songs on this year's CD. A reading of an original short story, written just for this CD, is also included.
The CD goes on pre sale November 28th, and will be released on December 5th. A physical CD can be ordered, as well as digital downloads for your computer and smartphones. All profits will go to The Manny L. Friedman Foundation. To purchase the CD and to donate to the charity, visit WolvertonMedia.com
