The Seabright Lawn Tennis and Cricket Club in Rumson provided a verdant backdrop for the Oceanic Library’s Raise the Roof campaign Saturday night. A cocktail party with hors d’oeurves lured 250 or so attendees to place bids at a silent auction.
The antique building seemed an appropriate setting. Filled with trophies and photos dating back to the 1800s, it is a charming reminder of how an historic building can stand the test of time when cared for properly.
