Press release from Navesink Business Group
The officers of Navesink Business Group have announced that tickets are on sale for the organization’s annual Waves of Support fundraising gala benefitting locally based charities.
Presented under the theme “A Taste of Broadway on the Promenade,” this year’s event will take place on Monday, September 22, 2014, at the historic Molly Pitcher Inn. The evening begins with cocktails at 6 pm, and includes a silent auction, spectacular entertainment, and a five-course dinner featuring selections from some stars of Monmouth County’s culinary landscape.
Headlining the evening’s entertainment will be a performance by The Broadway Dolls, the dynamic “girl group” founded by Hollie Howard, and featuring cast members from such Broadway hits as Mamma Mia, Rock of Ages and Jersey Boys.
Dinner will include hors d’oeuvres and several courses prepared by some of Monmouth County’s top dining spots, among them Ama Ristorante, Danny’s Steak House, David Burke Fromagerie, Soul Kitchen, Teak, The Bistro, The Cheese Cave and Zoe, in addition the executive chefs from The Molly Pitcher Inn and The Oyster Point Hotel.
“A Taste of Broadway on the Promenade will be the grand finale of Waves of Support,” said Navesink Business Group founder Robert Lowe. “Part of the evening will be dedicated to honoring several organizations and individuals who have made significant efforts in aiding our local communities.”
The evening’s honorees include The Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Clean Ocean Action, Hometown Heroes, the Buhler Family, and George Lyristis of Bistro Boys Management and Red Bank Flavour.
The gala is the third event of NBG’s Waves of Support initiative, a campaign created with Jersey Promise to raise funds for continued Sandy relief for Shore communities and to support tourism at the Jersey Shore. Ten randomly chosen Monmouth and Ocean County towns have selected various organizations and businesses as recipients of the proceeds. Recipients will include the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Sea Bright Rising, Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry, Churches of the Manasquan Area Ministerium, Habitat for Humanity, Visitation Relief Center, Hometown Heroes and the Jersey Shore Convention and Visitors Bureau.
