Rocker Jon Bon Jovi returned to his hometown on Monday to help make an announcement about New Jersey's Sandy Relief Fund.

The singer presented a $1M check to Gov. Chris Christie's wife, Mary Pat, who is overseeing the relief fund.

Gov. Chris Christie was also on hand at the Sayreville Borough Hall.

Bon Jovi has been a high-profile presence in his hometown since some neighborhoods were wiped out by Sandy last year.

The town has suffered through three severe floods since 2010 and had two major ones in the 1990s.

Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and former U.S. Sen. Bill Bradley are among the co-chairs of the fund that was organized by Mary Pat Christie soon after the storm struck New Jersey in October.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
