Thank You Girl: Jim Babjak

Jim Babjak, of the 1980s rock band, The Smithereens, is holding a charity concert for his late wife, who passed away from pancreatic cancer earlier this year. The Betty Babjak Memorial Concert will take place on Oct. 29 at The Hungarian-American Citizens Club in Woodbridge, NJ. The benefit will feature The Smithereens, with a special appearance by the group’s original bassist, Mike Mesaros. We will also see the reunion of Buzzed Meg, featuring Jim Babjak. Dinner, beer, and wine will be included with a donation of $200 per person. All of the proceeds will go to the Babjak family and The Betty Babjak Memorial Fund to help start a scholarship for Rutgers students who have lost a parent to pancreatic cancer.
