The deadly and destructive “Frankenstorm” (aka Hurricane Sandy) devastated thousands of people back in October, taking lives and destroying homes in its wake. The storm affected a whopping total of 24 states (not to mention the devastation of countries including Haiti and the Bahamas), and the damage was particularly severe in New York and New Jersey, where countless homes and neighborhoods were destroyed beyond repair.
Even though it’s nearly April, people are still working hard to rebuild their homes and lives after the tragedy, and in addition to the previous “Restore the Shore" benefit, MTV hosted the “Spring Fix” benefit concert at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey to help raise funds for United Way’s hurricane relief efforts over the weekend. The concert was an all-day event in the spirit of giving back, attended by an array MTV stars, including some of our favorite guidos and guidettes!
On March 23, Snooki, JWOWW, Vinny, Sammi Sweetheart, Ronnie, Deena Nicole, and Roger Mathews reunited to thank 50 student volunteers who worked hard to rebuild local communities. Before the big day took place, Snooki even donned a mask gloves (and leopard print, of course), volunteering in a construction project with United Way. Go, Snooki!
Though we’ll have to wait until April 1 to watch the full concert event on MTV, we’ve got some relief from our Jersey Shore withdrawal in the meantime, as castmates Instagrammed tons of pics from their special reunion!
“With the girls!” Sammi wrote as a caption for an awesome group shot with her, JWOWW, and Snooki, all of them looking gorgeous, wearing big floppy animal hats while hanging out at the theme park. She also posted a pic of just her and Deena, posing in front of the game booth where they’d snagged their hats. She also Instagrammed an awesome group shot of all the roomies together, including Roger, who wore a matching sweatshirt with his fiancée, JWOWW.
Snooki Instagrammed a pic of her and her fellow guidettes looking lovely, posing together for a cute group shot. “At #sixflags for #springfix,” Snooki captioned the pic. “[Heart] my bitches.” Aww, so good to see the girls together again. She also posted a pic a pic of her and Deena together — “With my meatball!,” she wrote — wearing matching monkey caps and looking super beautiful.
We missed Pauly D, The Situation, and Vinny, but it was great to see most of the cast together again — and for a great cause, no less. You can check out all the pics in the gallery below, and then hit the comments to tell us what you think of the reunion!
