Press release from Red Bank RiverCenter

Red Bank RiverCenter, in conjunction with the Red Bank Visitors Center, was awarded a $20,000 Cooperative Marketing Grant for 2014. The grant, available to organizations throughout the entire State of New Jersey, was applied for through the New Jersey Department of Tourism in June 2013, and will be used to expand Red Bank’s award-winning advertising campaign, “Escape for a Little While.”

The ad campaign will reach Washington, D.C., Connecticut, New York State, Pennsylvania, and Canada to encourage tourists and visitors to visit and stay in Red Bank, as well as the entire Jersey Shore.

Costs for the ad campaign will be funded by the grant, along with financial cooperation from the Red Bank Visitors Center, the Molly Pitcher Inn and Oyster Point Hotel, the Count Basie Theatre, and the Two River Theater.

Red Bank RiverCenter and Red Bank Visitors Center have worked in tandem for over a decade to promote Red Bank as the destination of choice for businesses, arts, accommodations and dining. RiverCenter Board of Trustees President Leo Zeik said, “We are proud and honored to have been chosen for this grant, and we look forward to showcasing Red Bank to some new markets.”

Both Red Bank RiverCenter and Red Bank Visitors Center are non-for-profit 501-C 3 organizations. Take it here for more information.
