Volunteers helped weed the area so they can

Volunteers helped weed the area so they can see J. Lo return for her first concert at home.

THE BRONX - Free tickets for next Wednesday's Jennifer Lopez concert sold out within minutes, but some lucky fans had a chance to get a free ticket by volunteering today.

Volunteers gathered at Orchard Beach to help to weed the area, as well as try to get their hands on a ticket to next week's Jennifer Lopez concert.

The Parks Department says it initially had a sign-up of about 300 people, but because of the weather, about 50 people came out to help clean the area.
