Jersey ShoreÂ star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will be headlining a special fundraiser as part of her community service for her summer arrest.Â The Donations of Love Drive in Seaside Heights, where Snooki was arrested, is a local charitable organization that provides aid to area animal shelters.
Snooki was arrested this summer in Seaside Heights and charged with criminal disorderly conduct.Â In September, Snooki plead guily to violating a local ordinance on public behavior.Â Snooki was fined $500 and sentenced to one day of community service.Â Snooki’s upcoming benefit appearance was approved last week as part of her community service.
Joanne LaCicero is the founder of the organization and said, “All proceeds are going to the Drive.Â Nicole is not walking away with a dime from this.”Â The organization helps provide animal shelters with spade and neuter programs.Â JoAnn Benson, Director of Toms River Township’s Department of Human Services said, “Jersey ShoreÂ is a very popular show and we are thrilled that Ms. Polizzi would use her fame to help our township’s homeless animals.”
The community center is located at 1000 Bay Boulevard.Â Admission is $10 and patrons can bring their own items to have autographed.Â Autographed photos of Polizzi will be sold for an additional $10 at the event.
While Snooki is making the appearance to fulfill her own personal obligations, at least her appearance is benefiting a good cause.Â The Associated Humane Societies was founded in 1906 and is the largest animal sheltering system in New Jersey with three branches, and theÂ raisedÂ funds will help the many homeless animals.
