The event, Making Waves for Autism, is a fundraiser for Improving Middletown’s Program for Autistic Children Together (IMPACT)

Afterward, IMPACT will host entertainment at Chris’s River Plaza Marina on West Front Street, with food, music, a 50/50 raffle and more.

Registration is $75 but free for participants who raise $250 or more. For more info, call 732.450.0119 or visit the website.

Red Bank Elks Lodge 233 on West Front Street will hold a fundraiser for U.S. Marine Cpl. Kamal Bowen of Piscataway, who suffered a traumatic brain injury and is confined to a wheelchair as a result of a car accident in Hiroshima, Japan in early 2007.
