Boss & Jon Stewart Team For Charity

The Nokia Theartre in Times Square brought big talent and big bucks together Saturday night (5/22) for the Gateway's Gala Benefit. Bruce Springsteen did an acoustic set that included Adam Raised A Cain (video), Bobby Jean, Promised Land, For You (video), Working On The Highway, and was then joined by Patti Scialfa for If I Should Fall Behind (video) and Thunder Road. The benefit, hosted by Matt Damon and Robert DeNiro, raised serious money for the organization that runs a special education center providing services to children with learning disabilities.  Donors contributed from $350 - $1,250 a ticket, with dinner and a cocktail reception provided for the heavy lifters.  A silent auction with items from a Zamboni ride during a Rangers NHL game and seats right behind the dugout in Yankee Stadium to premium opera seats brought in an additional $25,000 for the cause.
