Bruce Springsteen Helps Raise $50 Million At Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert

Bruce Springsteen, who performed at last week's 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert at NYC's Madison Square Garden, helped raise $50 million for organizations assisting victims of the storm.

According to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, the organization charged with distributing the funds, 40% is going to New Jersey-based charities, with the rest slated to go to charities in New York and Connecticut.

The $50 million figure was raised through ticket sales, merchandising and auctions at the concert.

The money should keep rolling in as the 12-12-12 concert album, featuring two Boss tracks ("Land of Hope and Dreams" and "Wrecking Ball"), is now available digitally, with proceeds going to Robin Hood. Others featured include Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Roger Waters, Eric Clapton, the Who and Bon Jovi.
