NEW YORK, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- The Broadway production of "Jersey Boys" has raised $43,521 to benefit New York Public Schools, the musical's producers said Monday.

The show about the iconic pop group Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons marked its fifth anniversary on Broadway this month.

As part of its celebration of the milestone, the production pledged to donate a dollar from each ticket sold to an October performance to VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

The money raised will help restore the instrumental music education program at P.S. 85 in the Bronx and the additional funds will go toward a second grant recipient school to be named in the future, the show's producers said in a news release.
