For the third straight year New Jersey-based internet radio station will will broadcast Giving a Second Chance: Benefit for National Foundation for Transplants. The benefit will air on March 2nd & 3rd, with musicians performing live on its station, raising funds for those in need of financial assistance upon facing a life-changing organ or tissue transplant.

This year's event is poised to garner even more funds and awareness for the National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) with a stellar line up consisting of over 20 artists, many from New Jersey, who traverse a gambit of genres from easing listening to punk rock and everything in between.

The National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals who are in need of organ or tissue transplants through financial assistance, advocacy, and emotional support. NFT sets up local fund-raising campaigns in honor of patients enrolled with NFT.

"I am thrilled we are able to continue this annual benefit, and help raise money for such an important cause," says Lazlo, founder of "Working closely once again with Catherine Wacha, a transplant recipient and musician that has long been a part of, we are really excited about the line-up and collection of songs that make up this year's benefit. So, please listen, donate and download. This is a great way to help people in need while also hearing some amazing music."

On March 2nd & 3rd, artists will perform live from their own studios which will be broadcast via's internet station. You can listen to from anywhere on any internet connected device.

A special donation page will be set up on the National Foundation for Transplants website,, for people to donate during the webathon. Everyone who donates $10 or more will receive a download of a special compilation, containing over 20 previously unreleased songs.

"I am fortunate to be over 3 years out from my ordeal but even with that I can still clearly remember the stress of not only needing a kidney transplant but having no idea how I was going to afford my portion of the surgery, the aftercare as well as being out of work for an undetermined amount of time while I recovered. This is the reality for many more people than you can imagine and that’s where the National Foundation for Transplants steps in," shares Catherine Wacha. "NFT provides a platform not only to help raise money to ease at least one of the stressors but also to raise awareness for a need that many may not realize exists. I am honored to be able to help them for a third year in a row and know that they appreciate every effort we make. The relief we are able to give to someone we don’t even know to get a life saving treatment is an incredible gift to be able to give."
