JBJ at Heart of Camden Gala

Jon's philanthropic endeavours were honoured at the Heart of Camden Gala this week:
CHERRY HILL — Rocker Jon Bon Jovi came to town Friday night to accept the “Small Things, Great Love” Award at the second annual Heart of Camden Gala. And during his remarks — contrary to the egotistical image one might conjure of an international superstar — the New Jersey native barely used the pronoun “I.”

“We are big believers in the power of we,” said the singer, founder of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. “Tonight we’re here to shine a light. We’re coming together to take control and make a difference.

“Government can’t do it alone. Residents or rock stars can’t do it alone. This award is not about me, it’s about us.”

And here's a nice ABC Action News video about the cause:


  1. Sometimes he makes me proud to be a fan!

  2. Absolutely, we get cynical and critical sometimes as diehards but the man brings about positive change.

  3. These are the things about him that just make us BIGGER fans...fame hasnt' gone to his head...fame hasn't made him forget those in need. He is down to earth, and give so freely his time and money. He is amazing man...who just happens to be famous...and can sing like no other! ;0) (and that goes for the rest of the band too..they are all GREAT human beings!)


Thanks for giving me your time.
