Katey Sagal is so much more than Gemma Teller Morrow, the gritty matriarch of the "Son of Anarchy" biker club. 

Turns out Sagal and her real life husband, "Anarchy" director Kurt Sutter, are as charitable as their TV characters are tough.

Sagal, New Jersey native Sutter, and other cast members of the hit FX cable channel series turned out Sunday Nov. 10 for a benefit event to raise money for two hurricane Sandy relief organizations.

The cast showed up at the Asbury Park's Paramount Theatre in New Jersey to answer fan questions, screen Sons of Anarchy Season 6 Episode 10 - and to raise nearly $70,000 in recovery relief for those affected by Hurricane Sandy, reports

All proceeds from the special fan event went to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and Staten Strong charities. Sutter says that every season, he sets viewership goals with Anarchy fans. If they're met, the show rewards the fans. This year, he decide to go to his home state to hold the fan event and sell tickets to raise funds for Sandy relief efforts.

"I try to maintain that relationship with our fans and show our appreciation. It was a way for us to do that and for our fans to help as well in terms of giving back to the community they love and just sort of have some fun," said Sutter.
