Mara Justine

Mara Justine sings for the animals of the Humane Society of Ocean City at Chickie’s & Pete’s at Tropicana Saturday.

If you have a heart for four-legged furry friends, then come to a benefit concert, sponsored by the Humane Society of Ocean City, 7 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at Chickie’s & Pete’s at the Tropicana Atlantic City.

Featuring Jeffrey Gaines and Mara Justine, the concert will raise money for the no-kill shelter’s animal residents with special needs.

Gaines, an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist, is delighted to participate in the concert.

“I appreciate that they extended the invitation to me,” he says. “Someone thought I’d be a good fit for this concert. That works for me.”

Like Gaines, Justine is excited to sing at the concert. The Galloway resident stole our hearts in Season 9 of America’s Got Talent and is thrilled to share her remarkable voice at the concert. “It’s for a good cause,” she says.

Admission is $35 and includes the show, food and drink specials. The concert will be held at Chickie’s & Pete’s, Tropicana Atlantic City, 2831 Boardwalk, Atlantic City. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at
