RUMSON, New Jersey (AP) -- Jon Bon Jovi took a break from his international tour to help a high school group raise $36,500 for a local medical clinic.

Bon Jovi, whose band played shows in Australia earlier this week, performed 10 songs during his appearance Thursday at Rumson-Fair Haven High School.

The show was a benefit performance for the Parker Family Health Center, a Red Bank-based free clinic.

Bon Jovi, who lives in nearby Middletown Township, performed some of his best-known hits, a few numbers from his new CD, "Bounce," and his version of Elvis Presley's "That's All Right, Mama."

He was backed by a five-piece band that included two musicians -- keyboardist Dave Bryan and bassist Hugh McDonald -- who regularly perform with his group.

"We're here to make a difference," the 40-year-old singer told the crowd that packed into the Monmouth County school's 750-seat auditorium.

The $35 tickets for the event, sponsored by the school's Spanish Honor Society, were sold mostly to students.
