Snooki, The Situation, Pauli D and the rest of the cast of “Jersey Shore” are re-uniting on MTV this week for a fund-raiser to help victims of the Jersey Shore devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The one-hour special, “Restore the Shore,” is to raise funds for the ravaged of Seaside Heights, the Jersey Shore town where much of the show was filmed. The photo is what’s left of the seaside roller coaster.
The MTV special includes celebrity guests in addition to the cast members of the reality show, which was cancelled after four seasons. “Restore the Shore” special airs live on Thursday, Nov. 15 from MTV’s Times Square Studio. According to Entertainment Weekly, viewers will be encouraged to donate online or via text message during and after the event. Funds raised will support Architecture for Humanity to work with the Borough of Seaside Heights to award rebuilding grants to local contractors, similar to its relief efforts in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
