VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT FOR KABOOM SHOW

Lunch Music made its intro overlooking the Navesink River in Red Bank Wednesday, a sweat-inducing afternoon that sent viewers to the few shaded spots available at Riverside Gardens Park.

As they were last year, representatives from RiverCenter were there with a table full of pamphlets of information while the Andreach-Crepta Jazz Duo hit the first notes of the summerlong series.

One aspect missing from the event, though, was a volunteer waving the yellow bucket for the Kaboom Fireworks Committee.

The committee, heading into the home stretch to raise funds for this year’s fireworks show on the Navesink River, is looking for people to get involved to help in the annual appeal from the public.

After securing major sponsorships for this year’s three-day land-and-air spectacle, including a $45,000 check from Wells Fargo, the committee is continuing its regular effort of seeking donations from the public — meaning the yellow buckets will become prevalent in the coming days and weeks. They’ll be out at the mid-week Lunch Music event from here on out, plus Riverfest next week and, of course, at the Kaboom fireworks show on July 3.

But the group needs a little help, so it’s asking that anybody interested phone or email. Benefits include a free parking spot, food, t-shirt and great seats for the fireworks, said committee member Andrew Devoto.

Here’s the schedule for volunteers:
