(NEW YORK) — One of the hardest hit regions of the Northeast during superstorm Sandy was Seaside Heights, N.J., the location of MTV’s Jersey Shore franchise. And to do their part, MTV is set to air Restore the Shore to raise funds for the region.
The one hour special will feature the stars of Jersey Shore, according to Deadline.com. Architecture for Humanity has also partnered with the music network in an effort to rebuild businesses that have been affected by the storm.
The funds raised through telephone and mobile options will go straight to rebuild Seaside Heights’ boardwalk, which was washed away during the storm, along with donations being made to local businesses.
Restore the Shore is set to air live on Nov. 15 at 11 p.m. ET.
