Hundreds of food lovers turned out at the Oyster Point Hotel in Red Bank Thursday night for a fundraiser to help Kelly Ryan rebuild her Hurricane Sandy-damaged restaurant, Boondocks Fishery. The Navesink Business Group organized the event, with participation by restaurants under the Red Bank Flavour umbrella.
Ryan, who had already raised $8,000 toward her $30,000 goal on indiegogo, told redbankgreen that sheetrock went up in her lobster shack located on the Navesink River adjacent to Marine Park earlier Thursday, and she’s shooting to reopen May 14.
The Oyster Point, too, was knocked out by the October 29 storm, returning to normal operations in February. (Click to enlarge)
